“It is your insanity that is the resource…”

“It is your insanity that is the resource. If you look at everything the way that everybody else does, you’d be painting shower curtains in New Jersey. If fame is what you want, get into rock and roll. Go into the movies. But in art, basically the resource is your own peculiarities, so that only in art or criminality you can get it out. And I much prefer art.”
– John Chamberlain, in conversation with Robert Creeley, 1991.
