Hans Hofmann

What I would hate most is to repeat myself over and over again—to develop a false style. I do not want to avoid immersing myself in trouble—to be in a mess—to struggle out of it. I want to invent, to discover, to imagine, to speculate, to improvise—to seize the hazardous in order to be inspired. I want to experience the manifestation of the absolute—the manifestation of the unexpected in an extreme and unique relation. I know that only by following my creative instincts in an act of creative destruction will I be able to find it.

Hans Hofmann, quoted in Hans Hofmann by Helmut Friedel and Tina Dickey
