Rebecca Purdum

  • [On the way she paints with her fingers, not using the intermediary of a brush:] The more you get physically into the paint you lose, you forget yourself. You become the paint, you become the form, you become the structure. It starts to become an outpouring thing, that is why you are doing it.
