Good Ideas, Bad Ideas

It seems to be some sort of law that the best ideas in art are kind of dumb. For a good example, what could be more sophomoric than Richter’s blur? If you have an idea and your better intelligence tells you it’s a bad one—that’s the sign to go all in. In any case you can’t tell what it’s worth until you make the work. These balls are a big surprise to me. They’ve taken my thinking about color organization a huge step forward.
