Felix Gonzalez-Torress Interview by Ross Bleckne from BOMB Magazine

FGT That’s how I always work: take your limitations . . .

RB And make them your strengths.

FGT I was telling my students, “Your limitations should be your strengths.” When I first started making art in 1987, I had no money. I had a little tiny studio smaller than this kitchen.

Felix Gonzalez-Torress’s words go out to all the young artists out there, who are struggling, doubting, starving, sweating, wondering, grumbling, worrying, overthinking, drowning, trembling, agonizing.

DO NOT FEAR to reveal your vulnerability. EMBRACE your inner self.
And MAKE IT BEAUTIFUL with your own hands.
