    "When I work, I don't think like what should I do. I always ask what can I do. What's possible to do. I can never make a painting where I say this is the right thing to do. It always has to be what can I do. What's possible for me to do. And I always go for the point where it becomes less and less possibilities. It's almost like I cannot do anything wrong. I go for this point where painting breaks. It opens up again. - Tal R, 2007
