     “What I have in mind is that art may be bad, good or indifferent, but...
     
       whatever adjective is used, we must call it art,
       and bad art is still art in the same way that a bad emotion is still an emotion.” 
     
     
                ― Marcel Duchamp

    I had been working purely abstractly for so long, it was important for me to see
    whether I was working abstractly because I couldn't work any other way,
    or whether I was doing it out of choice.

    We went to see "Dr. No" [the first James Bond film, 1962] at Forty-Second Street. It's a fantastic movie, so cool.
    We walked outside and somebody threw a cherry bomb right in front of us, in this big crowd.
    And there was blood. I saw blood on people and all over. I felt like I was bleeding all over.
    I saw in the paper last week that there are more people throwing them - it's just part of the scene - and hurting people.
     
    My show in Paris is to be called 'Death in America'.
    I'll show the 'Electric-chair' pictures and the Dogs in Birmingham and car wrecks and some suicide pictures

    “Technique is probably the most difficult tool to master, because it is a necessity but can easily become an obsession.

    Nothing can drown out new ideas as an obsession with technique.
     
    Technique is nothing if you have nothing to say.”
     

    -Peter Voulkos
