The power of a painting has to come from the inside out, not the outside in. It's not just an image. It's an image with a body and that body has to contain its spirit...What's behind it decides everything. How it starts will define how it ends.More Sean Scully quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I begin by drawing on the canvas with a kind of loose line, very simply and freely. I paint very thinly, which allows me to change the drawing if I want to.More Sean Scully quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
