I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love’s not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time…

"The urban interventions are meant to represent displacement of peasants in his native Columbia due to war and violence, themes that resonate in one form or another in any country his work is displayed in. Crafted from tree branches, fiberglass, and fabric, the 2 foot ants are particularly striking when seen clustered aggressively on facades of buildings."

Andrew Wyeth’s ‘Helga’ series spanned a friendship of over 240 images and 15 years in styles and poses evocative of Botticelli’s profiles and Manet’s figures

"The difference between me and a lot of painters is that I have to have a personal contact with my models…. I have to become enamored. Smitten. That’s what happened when I saw Helga." - Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009)
