"The words I use while speaking about art are not in a close connection with its creation, they are not always guide lines or useful explanations either .... my writing is not on account of my work."
David Smith

I've never tried to find out the roots of my visual experience. I think the experience I had in my own home has influenced myself most of all. There were all those plants and cactuses, there were of course paintings, but they did not arose any interest in me. I like neither digging in the past nor looking for a connection with somebody's opinion. I don't care at all whoever influenced me. I'm not afraid of quoting, I'm not afraid of mannerism. There are experiences, somebody's or  ours, I use them the way I find it necessary. proceses and reasons are not clear, but that's the way I feel.

Reči kojima govorim o umetnosti nisu u čvrstoj vezi sa njenim stavranjem, niti su uvek ssmernice ili korisna objašnjenja....... Ako pišem to nije na reačun moga rada
David Smit

Nikada nisam pokušao da nađem korene svoga vizuelnog iskustva. Mislim da je na mene najviše uticalo iskustvo sopstevnog doma. Svi oni kaktusi i biljke, bilo je tu i dosta slika ali me one nisu zanimale. Ne volim da kopam po prošlosti niti da tražim vezu sa nečijim mišljenjem. Baš me briga ko je uticao na mene. Ne bojim se da citiram, ne bojim se rukopisa. Postoje iskustva tuđa ili naša, sve jedno koristim ih kako mi je zgodno. Procesi i razlozi mi nisu jasni, tako samo osećam.
