Citáty Carl Andre

„Well sure, my sculptures are floor pieces. Each one, like any area on the surface of the earth, supports a column of air that weighs – what is it?“

—  Carl Andre

14.7 pounds per square inch. So in a sense, that might represent a column. It's not an idea, it's a sense of something you know, a demarked place. Somehow I think I always thought of it going that way, rather than an idea of a narrowing triangle going to the center of the earth.. .I have nothing to do with Conceptual art [in contrast to his Physical Art, as Carl Andre called his sculpture art already in 1969]]. I'm not interested in ideas. If I were interested in ideas, I'd be in a field where what we think in is ideas.. .I don't really know what an idea is. One thing for me is that if I can frame something in language, I would never make art out of it. I make art out of things which cannot be framed in any other way. [quote from a talk with the audience, December 1969]

„FORM = STRUCTURE = PLACE“

—  Carl Andre

quote in: Diane Waldman, Carl Andre https://archive.org/stream/carlandre00wald#page/6/mode/1up. Published in 1970 by Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. p. 6
Diane Waldman explains: 'Carl Andre's cryptic definition of sculpture as "FORM = STRUCTURE = PLACE" is significant in clarifying not only his own development but many of the options open to recent contemporary work.'

„Whole poems are made out of many single poems we call words... I am trying to recover a part of the poet's work which has been lost. Our first poets were the namers, not the rhymers.“

—  Carl Andre

undated quote about his own poetry; in ' Objects Are What We Aren't' https://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2015/02/26/objects-are-what-we-arent/, by Andy Battaglia; The Parish Review, February 26, 2015

„[Frank] Stella is not interested in expression or sensitivity. He is interested in the necessity of painting... His stripes are the paths of brush on canvas. These path leads only into painting.“

—  Carl Andre

„I realized the wood was better before I cut it, than after. I did not improve it in any way [by carving it].“

—  Carl Andre

As quoted in Abstract Art, Anna Moszynska, Thames and Hudson 1990, p. 206
quote after 1959, in Andre's early artistic career, when he made his sculpture 'Last Ladder'

„We live in a world of replicas, and I try desperately in a world of replicas to produce things that are not replicas of anything.“

—  Carl Andre

quote of Andre in an interview, 1972; in Carl Andre, Cuts: Texts, 1959–2004, ed. by James Meyer, MIT: Cambridge, MA, 2005, p. 142

„Emerson writes in his Journal that all men try their hands at poetry, but few know which their poems are. The poets are not those who write poems, but those who know which of the things they write are poems.“

—  Carl Andre
