Alice Neel

  • All experience is great providing you live through it. If it kills you, you've gone too far.

    • Alice Neel,
    • in Patricia Hill, ed., Alice Neel: The Paintings of Two Decades ()
  • I paint; I'm a woman but I don't paint china. The first time I got a canvas I felt free. Art is overreaction to life. I love these early drawings; they show my innocent beginnings in a small town. Life is a sentence — you live it out. Maybe these portraits jump out at you too much. People like things that conform.
