"I feel that my clearest pictures were at first strange to me-as D.H. Lawrence said, "even an artist knows that his work was never in his mind." I feel that whatever picture an artist makes it is in part a picture of himself.
Kisses are among the vehicles I would use if I were not able to make pictures.
For me, pictures provide a means of holding, intensely, a moment of communication between one human and another.”
-Emmet Gowin, May 1967
