Donald Judd QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
After all, the work isn't the point; the piece is.
Quotation of Donald Judd
And that Newman wasn't, and yet to me Pollock is just as radical and unlike Expressionism as Newman.
Quotation of Donald Judd
And then we moved to New Jersey and I went to the Art Students League.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Building is just skilled labor, I suppose. It's a lot of work. I don't mind other people building them, but the way things go together and are made is interesting to me; I like that a lot.
Quotation of Donald Judd
But I think that's a particular kind of experience involving a certain immediacy between you and the canvass, you and the particular kind of experience of that particular moment.
Quotation of Donald Judd
But I think you have to - whatever the environment looks like, it does enter into people's art work one way or another; it's very remote or it isn't. It's remote in my work but it has to have a certain degree of ordinariness.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Geometric art as such doesn't mean all that much to me. A lot of the people I admire aren't doing it. I don't feel the connection is that way.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I didn't want to get into something which is played out and narrow. I want to do as I like, invent my own interests.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I don't think geometric art is... I don't like to call it that. I don't think it's any more pure than pop art or anything else. It doesn't have anything to do with purity.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I haven't sufficient interest in objects or anything I can see around me to do what Oldenburg does.
Quotation of Donald Judd

Quotation of Donald Judd
I pay a lot of attention to how things are done and the whole activity of building something is interesting.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I recognize very much in Hopper that it does look like the United States; it looks like the 30's and my first impressions of everything, all of which I have to deal with and which gets mixed up in my work and probably gets mixed up in everybody else's work too.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I think most of the art now is involved with a denial of any kind of absolute morality, or general morality.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I think most of the best new work is intended to have much more impact at once.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I think some of the things I deal with Hopper probably has dealt with also, since it's somewhat the same environment and I have pretty strong reactions to what this country looks like. It looks pretty dull and spare, and you like this and dislike it and it's very complicated.
Quotation of Donald Judd
I think that's all you can deal with and I don't think the fact that Hopper shows what the place looks like is all that important.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Maybe it's difficult to understand important things. I don't think it necessarily has to be difficult to make. Obviously I think that's irrelevant.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Most art is fragile and some should be placed and never moved away.
Quotation of Donald Judd
One thing, I was a painter until maybe '61 or '62 - I'll have to figure out the dates - and then I started doing three-dimensional things.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Pollock looks unusual and radical even now.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Somewhere a portion of contemporary art has to exist as an example of what the art and the context were meant to be.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Stuart Davis has more to do with what the United States is like than Hopper.
Quotation of Donald Judd
The attitude and capacity of the factory, the old metal table and the new ideas of the wooden furniture quickly and naturally suggested the possibility of metal furniture.
Quotation of Donald Judd
The older painting - well, it does have an effect all at once, I suppose, but it's of a lesser intensity than a lot of the American work in the last ten or fifteen years.
Quotation of Donald Judd
There's probably more in the American tradition than people give the place credit for.
Quotation of Donald Judd
They certainly aren't connected with the old geometric art. My work isn't geometric in that sense.
Quotation of Donald Judd
They probably thought Pollock was acceptable because it looked like Expressionism.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Tolstoy may not be showing that much of Russia at that time even. It's hard to tell. You tend to associate the quality of the period with what's lasted - what's still good. And that quality becomes the whole period.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Usually when someone says a thing is too simple, they're saying that certain familiar things aren't there, and they're seeing a couple maybe that are left, which they count as a couple, that's all.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Well, I am not interested in the kind of expression that you have when you paint a painting with brush strokes. It's all right, but it's already done and I want to do something new.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Well, I don't think anyone now would say that they're painting the state of the culture of America. I think that's too grand and pompous a thing for anybody to claim.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Well, I think there are artists who are more or less contemporary with Hopper who are more relevant.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Well, in any art there are a lot of technical things that you can get to like.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Well, its very exasperating when you can't get it right.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Well, there's a morality in that you want your work to be good, I suppose.
Quotation of Donald Judd
Whatever didn't get written about or painted just goes and... but I don't much like the idea of representing the United States in my work. It's just that you live here and you are involved in your sense of what's around you - your sense of what's ordinary, for example, that I talked about.
Quotation of Donald Judd
You're only dealing with whatever you know, which is a very small part of it and later on it'll look like it has something to do with the period. Obviously, the artists have something to do with one another. They tend to set up certain common qualities among themselves.
