“I’d dismantled the art endeavor, but in the process I’d dismantled myself…In fact, I arrived at this point with a real dilemma, and the dilemma was that all my questions now seemed external to my practice…So I really had a decision to make at that point, and it was a fairly radical one in my life. See, I felt that if each day I got up and went down the street, the same street basically, and went into that studio, which was a particular scale and size… and if I brought with me all my expertise… that I would essentially continue to do the same thing. And I didn’t know exactly how to resolve that. But what I did was the simplest kind of thing — which was not an answer, but I think fairly reasonable given the dilemma — and that was to get rid of all those habits and practices altogether. I cut the knot. I got rid of the studio, sold all the things I owned, all the equipment, all my stuff; and without knowing what I was going to do with myself or how I was going to spend my time, I simply stopped being an artist in those senses. I just quit.”

— Robert Irwin, Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees
