From the Studio Interviews

La Sfida della Semplicita’

Tonight Giulia and I were admiring and discussing what I think is the nearly completed first great painting forged in the new studio.  I said to her:

It’s the unexpected simplicity in this painting that I like so much—it’s the most from the least—made of simple improvisations I could have never planned.  That’s the trick and the difficulty, finding the simplicity while maintaining a sense of spontaneity.

Low and behold, reading tonight’s news on the web, I stumble upon something Steve Jobs said in an interview from 1998:

That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
