"Antony Gormley Quotes"


+ We are all conscious in this globalized world that in some way human beings are affecting natural systems that have never been affected by one species.. We have the ability to foul the nest for ourselves and every other species, or do something about it.

+ I feel somewhat uncomfortable describing my work because I want it to be free to be experienced freely. At the same time it is important that it comes from somewhere very concrete: the living moment of a living body experiencing its own existence.

+ I think that we all are very visually informed these days. Maybe classical education within the visual arts has now been replaced by a multiplicity of visual images that come through computers and advertising and all sorts of sources.

+ Making beautiful things for everyday use is a wonderful thing to do.. making life flow more easily.. but art confronts life, allowing it to stop and perhaps change direction.. they are completely different.

+ I want to start where language ends.

+ Art has to change things, and if it was immediately acceptable it would not be doing the job. The press are the most cynical and re-enforce an outdated attitude that is not actually the way people think. People enjoy challenges, find visual art exciting and do not think all artists are trying to pull a fast one.

+ I think it is a communication, but it is a meeting of two lives. It’s a meeting of the expressiveness of me, the artist, and the expressiveness of you, the viewer. And for me the charge comes from that confrontation.

+ Art is the means by which we communicate what it feels like to be alive.. in the past that was mixed up with other illustrative duties but that was still its central function that has been liberated in the art called modern. Art is not necessarily good for you or about communicating "good things".

+ I am hoping that the work will not so much occupy as infect the space, calling upon its memories of other gatherings that once happened, and perhaps premonitions of others that have not yet happened.
