Every good painter paints what he is.

For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.

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 good painting about nothing.
