Oblique Strategies - Zen - Wabi-Sabi


"I aim for Zen Minimalism - but can't overcome my romantic impulses."

"I wish for impulsive creation but can't let go of my desire for perfection."

"It's beautiful down here. Just look around."

"I really feel sorry for people who think things like soap dishes or mirrors or Coke bottles are ugly, because they're surrounded by things like that all day long, and it must make them miserable."

"Leonardo da Vinci urged students to seek beauty in 'urine stains on a wall'."
(From "Pop Art", Rublowsky, 1965)

"Nobody has seen a flower - really - it is small. we haven't time - and to see takes time... I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it."
