Lee Krasner Quotes

Quotes by Lee Krasner - (8 quotes)

Lee Krasner - From the Artists category:

I have never been able to understand the artist whose image never changes. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Change category:

All my work keeps going like a pendulum; it seems to swing back to something I was involved with earlier, or it moves between horizontality and verticality, circularlity, or a composite of them. For me, I suppose, that change is the only constant. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Depression category:

My own image of my work is that I no sooner settle into something than a break occurs. These breaks are always painful and depressing but despite them I see that there's a consistency that holds out, but is hard to define. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Immortality category:

Painting... in which the inner and the outer man are inseparable, transcends technique, transcends subject and moves into the realm of the inevitable. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Miracles category:

Painting, for me, when it really 'happens,' is as miraculous as any natural phenomenon – as say, a lettuce leaf. By 'happens,' I mean the painting in which the inner aspect of man and his outer aspects interlock. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Questions category:

One could go on for ever as to whether the paint should be thick or thin, whether to paint the woman or the square, hard-edge or soft, but after a while such questions become a bore. They are merely problems in aesthetics, having only to do with the outer man. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Rhythm category:

I never violate an inner rhythm. I loathe to force anything... I don't know if the inner rhythm is Eastern or Western. I know it is essential for me. I listen to it and I stay with it. I have always been this way. I have regards for the inner voice. (Lee Krasner)

Lee Krasner - From the Solitude category:

-on Jackson Pollock...
With Jackson there was quiet solitude. Just to sit and look at the landscape. An inner quietness. After dinner, to sit on the back porch and look at the light. No need for talking. For any kind of communication. (Lee Krasner)
