Rebel Art

May 05, 1985

Fischl: "He was making fun of my painting."

Me: Give me a shot at it. I'll bet I could do a better job.

Salle: "I fantasized a lot about what real people did in real places."

Me: It paid off. You're so "real" it's scary.

Schnabel: "I don't like any of their work."

Me: Neither do I.

Longo: "Why do artists have to die and then people make the money?"

Me: Probably because artists who are alive and making money say such stupid things that you wish they had died before they got a chance to say them.
