Although I feel that I am a horrible drawer/artist, I have a wild imagination. At first I was greatly embarrassed by what I had drawn and yet I felt that I had accomplished what I wanted. The main topics (hallucination, dream, etc.) can actually be thought of in some ways as one in the same. I typically do not like group work at all. I like to do things at my own pace and I find it difficult to work in a team because you must rely on others and they must rely on you. This time, though, was not that bad at all. In our group it was sort of like a single person project anyway. Each one of us got a piece of paper and designed what we though the topic was about. I liked that we all kind of decided on that and it worked out well for everyone.
Statement — June 7, 1943
"1. To us art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can be explored only by those willing to take the risks.
2. This world of imagination is fancy-free and violently opposed to common sense.
3. It is our function as artists to make the spectator see the world our way not his way.
4. We favor the simple expression of the complex thought. We are for the large shape because it has the impact of the unequivocal. We wish to reassert the picture plane. We are for flat forms because they destroy illusion and reveal truth.
5. It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism.
There is no such thing as a good painting about nothing.
We assert that the subject is crucial and only that subject matter is valid which is tragic and timeless. That is why we profess spiritual kinship with primitive and archaic art."
