DEVOUT MAXIMA                      



ABSTRACTION IS AN EFFORT, NOT A STYLE.

AN ARTIST IS NOT HERE TO DO WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.

AN ARTIST MUST ONLY PAINT WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO THEM. AN ARTIST MUST NOT RESPOND TO OUTSIDE DEMANDS.

ART COMES INEVTIABLY AS THE TREE FROM THE ROOT, THE BRANCH FROM THE TRUNK, THE BLOSSOM FROM THE TWIG.

AN ARTIST IS ALWAYS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

AN ARTIST IS ALWAYS A STUDENT.
