“I could see no reason why used tram tickets, bits of driftwood, buttons and old junk from attics and rubbish heaps should not serve well as materials for paintings; they suited the purpose just as well as factory-made paints… It is possible to cry out using bits of old rubbish, and that’s what I did, gluing and nailing them together.” Kurt Schwitters

    I still remember seeing a retrospective of Schwitters’ work at the San Francisco Museum of Art (now SFMOMA), in 1968. The incredible power that seeing so much of his work, together, in one place was for me a transformative experience.
