“The painting has a life of its own.
I try to let it come through.”
— Jackson Pollock
“A photograph to me is always a reminder of how the person was on a certain day in that certain light fixed. When I look at a watercolor of that same person, it seems to me alive, more open than a photograph.” — Francesco Clemente
