Art Quotes for May 31
The dripping... well, if it happens, it happens; it does not take anything from the work. The dripping just proves that you were not trying to control the work, but the work was developing by itself and if it drips, it's a natural part in the evolution of the work..
::: Keith Haring :::
Congratulate yourselves if you have done something strange and extravagant and broken the monotony of a decorous age..
::: Ralph Waldo Emerson :::
Art Quotes for May 28

Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave..
::: Constantin Brancusi :::
Since there is never enough time to do everything that needs to be done, you must be continually setting priorities on your activities..
::: Brian Tracy :::

Art Quotes for May 26
When I paint, the sea roars. The others splash about in the bath..
::: Salvador Dali :::
Images also help me find and realise ideas. I look at hundreds of very different, contrasting images and I pinch details from them, rather like people who eat from other people’s plates.
::: Francis Bacon :::
Art Quotes for May 24

My work is purely autobiographical.. It is about myself and my surroundings. I work from people that interest me and that I care about, in rooms that I know.
::: Lucian Freud :::
When I look at a body it gives me choice of what to put in a painting, what will suit me and what won't. There is a distinction between fact and truth. Truth has an element of revelation about it. If something is true, it does more than strike one as merely being so.
::: Lucian Freud :::

Art Quotes for May 21
An artist needn’t be a clergyman or a churchwarden, but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men.
::: Vincent van Gogh :::
Iron rusts from disuse, stagnant water loses its purity, and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigors of the mind.
::: Leonardo da Vinci :::
Art Quotes for May 19

One may say 'the eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility'.
::: Albert Einstein :::
The fine art of painting, which is the bastard of alchemy, always has been always will be, a game. The rules of the game are quite simple: in a given arena, on as many psychic fronts as the talent allows, one must visually describe, the centre of the meaning of existense.
::: Brett Whiteley :::

Art Quotes for May 14
If I accept you as you are, I will make you worse. However, if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming, I help you become that..
::: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe :::
The auction room, as anyone knows, is an excellent medium for sustaining fictional price levels, because the public imagines that auction prices are necessarily real prices.
::: Robert Hughes :::
Art Quotes for May 12

Even within the most beautiful landscape, in the trees, under the leaves the insects are eating each other; violence is a part of life.
::: Francis Bacon :::
I may seem to be passionately concerned with the 'hows' of representation, how you actually represent rather than 'what' or 'why'. But to me this is inevitable. The 'how' has a great effect on what we see. To say that 'what we see' is more important than 'how we see it' is to think that 'how' has been settled and fixed. When you realize this is not the case, you realize that 'how' often affects 'what' we see.
::: David Hockney :::

Art Quotes for May 10
The deed is everything, the glory naught..
::: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe :::
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 May 7
The problem with the youth of today' is that one is no longer part of it.
::: Salvador Dali :::
It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree..
::: Charles Baudelaire :::
Art Quotes for May 5

Impressionism is the newspaper of the soul..
::: Henri Matisse :::
Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask.
::: Robert Motherwell :::

Art Quotes for May 3
Most of the time they buy what other people buy. They move in great schools, like bluefish, all identical. There is safety in numbers. If one wants Schnabel, they all want Schnabel, if one buys a Keith Haring, two hundred Keith Harings will be sold.
::: Robert Hughes :::
For the warrior, there is no "better" or "worse"; everyone has the necessary gifts for his particular path..
::: Paulo Coelho :::
