“I express myself best artistically somewhere between the ideas in my head and at the tip of my brush, because none of my finished canvases or any oral statements I am able to make are completely artistically successful. Therefore, I am destined to spend my life pushing my feelings toward the canvas and pulling them toward my mouth in order to satisfy this insatiable need to express myself.” – Benny Andrews
