Painting is killer shit

"It's like being a god half the time and a murderer the rest of the time. You're creating a universe in the studio. You're trying to make something new in the world one minute, and the next you're cutting it up and lacerating it. You're tearing it, sweating like a pig, totally soaked. Painting is killer shit."

John Hoyland RA on being an artist
