Bill Jensen on painting

“I’ve developed a process where, at a certain point, something is born in the painting. It comes from the process: at a certain moment you feel this thing that’s in the paint. It is a living tissue and it’s my job to nurture it and to let it clarify itself. And if I’m not sensitive to it, I’ll lose it. But it’s important that I don’t judge it, that I accept it on its own terms.” ~ Bill Jensen
