The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves.
Willem de Kooning April 24, 1904
Well, I have my beautiful de Kooning
to aspire to. I think it has an orange
bed in it, more than the ear can hold
