Art Quotes Published in April 2004

 
Art Quotes for April 30
Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art..
::: Pablo Picasso :::
Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs..
::: Pablo Picasso :::
Art Quotes for April 21

Red is one of the strongest colors, it's blood, it has a power with the eye. That's why traffic lights are red I guess, and stop signs as well... In fact I use red in all of my paintings..
::: Keith Haring :::
I think you have to control the materials to an extent, but it's important to let the materials have a kind of power for themselves; like the natural power of gravity, if you are painting on a wall, it makes the paint trickle and it drips; there is no reason to fight that..
::: Keith Haring :::

Art Quotes for April 16
This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in..
::: Charles Dickens :::
There are some images that I will only use once, and not use again because they don't seem to really hit the nail right on the head, but there are some which are so strong they have to be reduced; sometimes just reusing them makes them stronger..
::: Keith Haring :::
Art Quotes for April 14

Everyone has talent at 25. The difficulty is to have it at 50..
::: Edgar Degas :::
Practise what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know..
::: Rembrandt :::

Art Quotes for April 12
I don't think art is propaganda; it should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it..
::: Keith Haring :::
I have a hatred of habit and routine. And what dogs love is just that. They like regular everything, and I don't have regular anything. I have a timetable, but no routine..
::: Lucien Freud :::
Art Quotes for April 9
An artist chooses his subjects: that is the way he praises..
::: Friedrich Nietzsche :::
An artist is an artist only because of his exquisite sense of beauty, a sense which shows him intoxicating pleasures, but which at the same time implies and contains an equally exquisite sense of all deformities and all disproportions..
::: Charles Baudelaire :::
Art Quotes for April 7
The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves..
::: Willem de Kooning :::
Whatever an artist’s personal feelings are, as soon as an artist fills a certain area on the canvas or circumscribes it, he becomes historical. He acts from or upon other artists..
::: Willem de Kooning :::
Art Quotes for April 5
Why not seize the pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation?..
::: Jane Austen :::
Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt..
::: William Shakespeare :::
Art Quotes for April 2
Art prices are determined by the meeting of real or induced scarcity with pure, irrational desire, and nothing is more manipulable than desire..
::: Robert Hughes :::
This is the nature of genius, to be able to grasp the knowable even when noone else recognizes that it is present..
::: Deepak Chopra :::
