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."
