Olivier Mosset

born 1944 in Bern, Switzerland
lives and works in New York, USA since 1977

"The monochrome does not exist. i do paintings. i use paints that I apply to the canvas. In this way it (the canvas) is already marked. The canvas strechted on a frame is already appropriated, is already painting. I don't know wether this constitutes good painting, but it is painting."

Oliver Mosset quotet from Entretien avec Joel Lechaux (1983) in John Armleder, Hemlut Federle, Oliver Mosset, Ecrits et entretiens, Grenoble and Siant-Etienne, 1987, p. 197.
