Philip Guston Quotes - click name for biography


 ·         Painting is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is not what you see. I don't know what a painting is; who knows what sets off even the desire to paint? It might be things, thoughts, a memory, sensations, which have nothing to do directly with painting itself. They can come from anything and anywhere.
- Philip Guston

·         Look at any inspired painting. It's like a gong sounding; it puts you in a state of reverberation.
- Philip Guston


·         I am a night painter, so when I come into the studio the next morning the delirium is over. I come into the studio very fearfully, I creep in to see what happened the night before. And the feeling is one of, "My God, did I do that?".
- Philip Guston


·         To paint is a possessing rather than a picturing.
- Philip Guston


·         There's some mysterious process at work here, which I don't even want to understand.
- Philip Guston


·         Usually I am on a work for a long stretch, until a moment arrives when the air of the arbitrary vanishes, and the paint falls into positions that feel destined.
- Philip Guston


·         There is something ridiculous and miserly in the myth we inherit from abstract art.. that painting is autonomous, pure and for itself, and therefore we habitually defined its ingredients and define its limits. But painting is "impure". It is the adjustment of impurities which forces painting's continuity. We are image makers and image ridden.
- Philip Guston
