Marlene Dumas

"My best works are erotic displays of mental confusions(with intrusions of irrelevant information)"

The Image as Burden

Broken White - 2006

"I am against:

general ideas

the nude

the appropriation of images

the mystification of the untitled

the glorification of artistic doubt

the fuzzy edges of sensitivity

old sins

and useless guilt"

("Sweet Nothings" - Amsterdam 1998)
