Certain artists are unable to develop because they are disconnected from history. To me development is paramount. I think that development and humility go hand in hand.

-Sean Scully

Do we expect, rather, that successful development demands arrogant self-certainty? On reflection perhaps not, for arrogance implies that an artist knows dogmatically how to proceed, while humility involves productive acknowledgment of deep uncertainty.

-David Carrier, in Sean Scully
