"we always say that the dynamic of all the projects is in the fabric. that fabric will move with the wind, the water, with the natural elements."
"I think that art is impulsive pleasure, some kind of organic part of our existence..." -Christo
i've recently started to pick up the books i have of Christo's work again and read through them. as i read the things he says about art, i feel myself coming back to life. he has been one of my favorite artists for a long time and i continue to be inspired by him. i love him. his are the reasons i make art.
i still remember what Jeanne-Claude said at the Gates project in Central Park in 2005, when i asked her and Christo for advice; She said this is what they tell young people,
"figure out what you want to do and do it."
