Sunday Random Quote

A quote from Karel Appel that was written on the wall of the KMSKA in Antwerp. Here’s my best effort to a translation:

I never try to ‘make’ a painting,
it’s a scream, it’s naked,
it’s like a child, it’s like a caged tiger.
I am the surgeon of space
and paint human spaces.
My painting tubeĀ is like a rocket
that writes in its own space.

Karel Appel 1957
