Quote of Note | Jasper Johns

“So much of the meaning to me is in the making. While that’s going on, there’s shifts of thought and associations and paths of development you want to follow and you want to avoid. Somehow the viewer can have a somewhat similar experience of determining. It sounds corny, but you have a sense of being alive when you encounter the thing.”

Jasper Johns, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom earlier this year, in an interview with Julie Belcove for the Financial Times
