The art world was not initially really accepting my kind of work. I was ahead of my time.
I always believed that my work should be unfinished in the sense that I encourage people to add their creativity to it, either conceptually or physically. Back in the 1960s, I was calling for 'Unfinished Music,' number one, and number two, with my artwork - I was taking unfinished work into the gallery. And that's how I was looking at it.
I've always said that I use my voice as an instrument. It was something I created myself, and I said, 'Have voice, will travel.'
It's a waste of time to think that if you colored a painting red what might have happened if you painted it black.
