Andrew Forge Quotes

Quotes by Andrew Forge - (5 quotes)

Andrew Forge - From the Ambition category:

My ambition is to construct a painting so that the whole of its surface is alive, however I look at it. Each mark, and the interval between each mark must give something back on its own terms. (Andrew Forge)

Andrew Forge - From the Colour category:

It must be vivid. Extended in space and time, the dots accrue, giving back pathways, constellations, geometries, and at last, as the white ground of the canvas is overcome, unforeseen color sensations. (Andrew Forge)

Andrew Forge - From the Discipline category:

-on Willem de Kooning...
Like bodies these canvases are subject to both discipline and incontinence, to the utmost athletic control, and to fumbles, spurts, accidents. (Andrew Forge)

Andrew Forge - From the Painting category:

-on Willem de Kooning...
The paint has a skin to it, here taut and glossy, there wrinkled, abraded, scarred. It is pierced, abraded, scraped. A line drawn through it will go through half a dozen states, from the furry bloom of crusted charcoal to a blind furrow, cutting a channel in to soft paint below. (Andrew Forge)

Andrew Forge - From the Reality category:

I'm trying to do something that is real. What I mean is this; my sense of being in the world starts with a physical relationship with my surroundings, their weight, texture, density, transparency, and so forth... (Andrew Forge)
