Wallace Berman

"James Dean is a myth. And Wallace Berman's a myth. I can't really think of a lot of them, but they're myths because they really were that talented and they really were that influential on the people around them." - Dennis Hopper

"Figure moving through darkness suddenly illuminated in a random harsh light .... Young, hawk-face intensity, straight ahead stare, super cool, zoot suit type attire topped by brush cut hair straight up, with young woman in tight black dress disappearing suddenly in room behind stage .... 'Who was that?' ... 'That's Wallace Berman' came the anonymous reply with an authority that implied all had been said." - Walter Hopps
