86886. Well, there’s a morality in that you want your work to be good, I suppose. – Donald Judd

86897. And then we moved to New Jersey and I went to the Art Students League. – Donald Judd

86898. Building is just skilled labor, I suppose. It’s a lot of work. I don’t mind other people building them, but the way things go together and are made is interesting to me; I like that a lot. – Donald Judd

86899. But I think that’s a particular kind of experience involving a certain immediacy between you and the canvass, you and the particular kind of experience of that particular moment. – Donald Judd

86902. I pay a lot of attention to how things are done and the whole activity of building something is interesting. – Donald Judd

86903. I recognize very much in Hopper that it does look like the United States; it looks like the 30’s and my first impressions of everything, all of which I have to deal with and which gets mixed up in my work and probably gets mixed up in everybody else’s work too. – Donald Judd

86904. I think most of the art now is involved with a denial of any kind of absolute morality, or general morality. – Donald Judd

86905. I think some of the things I deal with Hopper probably has dealt with also, since it’s somewhat the same environment and I have pretty strong reactions to what this country looks like. It looks pretty dull and spare, and you like this and dislike it and it’s very complicated. – Donald Judd

86906. But I think you have to – whatever the environment looks like, it does enter into people’s art work one way or another; it’s very remote or it isn’t. It’s remote in my work but it has to have a certain degree of ordinariness. – Donald Judd
