Hello, Infinite Being

Think pink! Think pink when you shop for summer clothes. Think pink! Think pink if you want that quelque chose. Red is dead, blue is through, green’s obscene, brown’s taboo. And there’s not the slightest excuse for plum or puce—or chartreuse. Think pink! Forget that Dior says black and rust. Think pink! Who cares if the New Look has no bust. Now, I wouldn’t presume to tell a woman what a woman oughta think, but tell her if she’s gotta think: think pink!

Art, the Heart and Tracey Emin

Art arises from loss. I wish this weren’t the case. I wish that every time I met a new woman and she rocked my world, I was inspired to write my ass off. But that is not what happens. What happens is we lie around in bed eating chocolates and screwing. Art is what happens when things don’t work out, when you’re licking your wounds. Art is, to a larger extent than people would like to think, a productive licking of the wounds.”
