Robert Rauschenberg: "'An artist manufactures his material out of his own existence???his own ignorance, familiarity or confidence. I come to terms with my materials. They know and I know that we???re going to try to do something. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn???t but I would substitute anything for preconceptions or deliberateness. If that moment can???t be as fresh, strange and unpredictable as what???s going on around you, then it???s false."
