A great thrill in making art for me is the waltz of the material's nature with mine.

Bacon mentioned material behaviors and its resulting suggestions that he claimed he could never do consciously. It's as if, sometimes, the painting nearly makes itself and all the artist does is arrive on the scene to shepherd all to a conclusion.

This boy leaves me glad beyond all believing to be far from the hammers and the bells.
