“for a twisted sort of way I am doomed to be buried alive in cadmium orange, red, yellow light with flowers on my grave of magenta violet, and my casket being the canvas for forcefully having to wrap, walk, and slide into it everyday I like the wave Russian blue shore and the shore of the tree the leaf the wind the end…I want to paint – paint, paint! Paint! Paint! And then paint more and more. I’m what is jokingly called an esthetic junkie- I’m hooked on pigment. So please forgive me and most of all believe in me.”

"Curating, it seems to me, might best be understood as a kind of relationship – a friendship – that is both committed and somehow capricious enough to be, in any product of the relation, altruistic. There’s a very real possibility that artists and curators are the same and the other to one another."  - Ed Atkins on “Being Curated”
