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.-Andy Warhol, 1962Peter Voulkos Pinatubo Ceramic ca. 1957
“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.”
