You might say that a creative person is a person who simply has a desire to have something, to add something to the world that’s not there yet, and goes about arranging fort that to happen.. ...when you desire a work of art and make it, you've added to the stock of art in the world. Artists are one of the people who can do that: add to the stock of things.
p. 15 (Artists talks 1969 – 1977)
The wood was better before I cut it, than after. I did not improve it in any way.Carl Andre
I’m an anti-Platonist, so I wouldn't say that stock was a stock of ideas or certainly not an ideal form, because I don’t believe there is something out there, except out there. There’s something in here and there’s something out there, and there’s mediation between the two.Carl Andre
