“There is the idea in modern design that it’s good if it functions perfectly. And from that it is beautiful. It’s also a Platonic idea that if it functions well it is good. I translated this idea to art more or less… If the form is useful, then it’s beautiful. Adolf Loos once said that you should never paint an object with a color that it has naturally, like a wooden door should never be painted brown.”
–Franz West, from “Waking Up With Zombies: An Interview with Franz West” by Tom Eccles
