One Hundred Live and Die




Bruce Nauman

“I’m surprised when the work appears beautiful, and very pleased. And I think work can be very good and very successful without being able to call it beautiful, although I’m not clear about that. The work is good when it has a certain completeness, and when it’s got a certain completeness, then it’s beautiful.”

Love this one so much….
