On art making

head-of-girl-on-easel2.jpg
It should be something that is happening all at once, that’s inhabiting you, that you are doing and you have one way or another managed to get yourself into that space, and there’s an angel on your shoulder.

That’s how you should make art.

If you are plotting art and trying to make something to get something, you are not in a state of creative innocence. You’re not making art, you’re doing something else.
— Sean Scully
