Jeff Koons once said, and I quote loosely: “The american artists feels like they do not need permission. They are these young little kids that will grab and do anything they want. Because it is really seeking this kind of spiritual salvation. It doesn’t have to perform in a good manner.That’s the strength in the 20th century.” This idea is what I believe to be true. I feel like that new energy that children have.. To me, art should be about the new, the young, the monstrously egotistic.
