Wolf Kahn, The Per Contra Interview with Miriam N. Kotzin

"With each painting, you have to set up a situation in which you can be surprised.  You have to have the opportunity to be spontaneous.


Iím really a Platonist and a Kantian.  Everyoneís mind contains has a Category for Beauty.  In painting, each individual painting has its own requirements. When Iím working on a painting I keep going until I meet its requirements.  And then I stop."
