“I don’t care if people call it art or not – that’s really not my question, you know. As far as I know that question was solved…Duchamp’s urinal was you know, complacently sitting in MoMA before I wet my first diaper.

So those are not my issues; what I care about is, ‘is it interesting?’ Am I making a contribution to visual culture that’s engaging, that brings up questions, that produces dialogue and discourse?” Mark Dion

Walton Ford, Passenger Pigeons, 
"The dreamlike quality gave me all this room to pack it with all narrative" That seems to happen independent of the fact that this thing was crashing down." Walton Ford

Walton Ford, Installation view of Tigers of Wrath, Brooklyn Museum, 2007
"I wanted to make the largest watercolors ever. Ultimately that because fun all by itself. Sounds like I have all these intellectual reasons for painting these things but ultimately I want to paint a sexy monkey and a big elephant with an erection.... big overwrought emotion, melodrama... I am a maximalist...." Walton Ford.
