Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Being right can stop all the momentum of a very interesting idea.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “It is impossible to have progress without conscience.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Understanding is a form of blindness. Good art, I think, can never be understood.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “I really feel sorry for people who think things like soap dishes or mirrors or Coke bottles are ugly, because they’re surrounded by things like that all day long, and it must make them miserable.”

Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “People ask me, ‘Don’t you ever run out of ideas?’ In the first place I don’t use ideas. Every time I have an idea it’s too limiting, and usually turns out to be a disappointment. But I haven’t run out of curiosity.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Photography is the most direct communication in non-violent contacts.”

Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Screwing things up is a virtue. Being correct is never the point. I have an almost fanatically correct assistant, and by the time she re-spells my words and corrects my punctuation, I can’t read what I wrote. Being right can stop all the momentum of a very interesting idea.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “While my classmates were reading their textbooks, I drew in the margins.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Even at this late date, I go into my studio, and I think ‘Is this going to be it? Is it the end?’ You see, nearly everything terrorizes me. When an artist loses that terror, he’s through.”

Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “There was a whole language that I could never make function for myself in relationship to painting, and that was attitudes like tortured, struggle, pain.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “I think a painting is more like the real world if it’s made out the real world.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Basically painting is total idiocy.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “And also the new excitement and variety of ways that the abstract expressionists were applying paint. You could put it on as though it were colored air and it would be painting.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “You have to have the time to feel sorry for yourself in order to be a good abstract expressionist.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “You wait until life is in the frame, then you have the permission to click. I like the adventure of waiting until the whole frame is full.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “I refuse to be in this world by myself. I want an open commitment from the rest of the people.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “The working process is ideally freeing my mind.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “There’s a moment for everyone when you fall into your own shadow and the fact is that it’s your shadow and you’re forced to live in it. And this is nothing to celebrate or not celebrate. It simply is.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “There was something about the self-confession and self-confusion of abstract expressionism – as though the man and the work were the same – that personally always put me off because at that time my focus was in the opposite direction.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “I am sick of talking about What and Why I am doing. I have always believed that the WORK is the word. Action is seen less clearly through reason. There are no shortcuts to directness.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “It’s so easy to be undisciplined. And to be disciplined is so against my character, my general nature anyway, that I have to strain a little bit to keep on the right track.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “I’m sure we don’t read old paintings the way they were intended.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “With me, it’s much more a matter of accepting whatever happens, accepting all these elements from the outside and then trying to work with them in a sort of free collaboration.”

Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “Every time I’ve moved, my work has changed radically.”
Robert Rauschenberg Quote: “I don’t mess around with my subconscious.”
