What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
Remain free in your work, and be wary of modes, as only the work matters. I also love this quote by Francis Bacon: ”You know, for me the paint–and the older I get, the more it really was an accident. I see it, but I almost never happens that I had expected. They transform itself. in fact, I rarely know what will be the canvas and many things happen by accident, because it becomes a process to know which element of the accident I will choose to preserve.”
