Famous Painters and Sculptors Famous Painters and Sculptors

* Josef Albers quotes
+ I do not like to be a prophet. I like better to paint than to predict what the next painters will do. Though I have a feeling that consideration of order is very much in the air.

* Arman quotes

::: arman quotes :::
+ I have always been very much involved in the pseudo biological cycle of production, consumption and destruction. And for a long time, I have been anguished by the fact that one of its most conspicuous material results is the flooding of our world with junk and rejected odd objects.
* Jean Arp quotes
::: arp quotes :::
+ Art is a fruit that grows in man, like a fruit on a plant, or a child in its mother’s womb.
* Constantin Brancusi quotes
+ Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave.
* Alexander Calder quotes
+ The sense of motion in painting and sculpture has long been considered as one of the primary elements of the composition.
* Tony Cragg quotes
::: cragg quotes :::
+ At some point we’ve got to stop asking ourselves what is the meaning of everything, maybe it’s not so very important what it means. It’s probably more important what the sense of it is.. they are two very basic and different things.
* Willem de Kooning quotes
+ 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.
* Richard Diebenkorn quotes
+ In a successful painting everything is integral.. all the parts belong to the whole. If you remove an aspect or element you are removing its wholeness.
* Philip Guston quotes
+ I am a night painter, so when I come into the studio the next morning the delirium is over. I come into the studio very fearfully, I creep in to see what happened the night before. And the feeling is one of, "My God, did I do that?".
* Damien Hirst quotes
::: hirst quotes :::
+ I think art is good at looking back and looking forward. I don't think art is good at looking head-on. At the end of the day, people are more important than paintings.
* Hans Hofmann quotes
+ A work of art is a world in itself reflecting senses and emotions of the artist's world.
* Donald Judd quotes
::: judd quotes :::
+ I didn't want to get into something which is played out and narrow. I want to do as I like, invent my own interests.
* Wassily Kandinsky quotes
+ An empty canvas is a living wonder.. far lovelier than certain pictures.
* Paul Klee quotes
::: klee quotes :::
+ Everything vanishes around me, and works are born as if out of the void. Ripe, graphic fruits fall off. My hand has become the obedient instrument of a remote will.
* Yves Klein quotes
::: klein quotes :::
+ As I lay stretched upon the beach of Nice, I began to feel hatred for birds which flew back and forth across my blue sky, cloudless sky, because they tried to bore holes in my greatest and most beautiful work.
* Franz Kline quotes
::: kline quotes :::
+ The final test of a painting, theirs, mine, any other, is: does the painter's emotions come across?
* Lee Krasner quotes
+ We get used to a certain kind of color of form or format, and it's acceptable. And to puncture that is sticking your neck out a bit. And then pretty soon, that's very acceptable.
* Kasimir Malevich quotes
+ With the most primitive means the artist creates something which the most ingenious and efficient technology will never be able to create.
* Joan Miro quotes
::: miro quotes :::
+ I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.
* Piet Mondrian quotes
+ Art is not made for anybody and is, at the same time, for everybody.
* Robert Motherwell quotes
+ Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask.
* Albert Oehlen quotes
+ I painted with acrylic paint, and the reason why I went to oil was mainly because I didn’t control it. I was looking for the insecurity of it. I mean, I might have found another reason later, but at that moment, the reason was I was looking for the insecurity.
* Jackson Pollock quotes
+ Every good painter paints what he is.
* Gerhard Richter quotes
+ I can't always reach the image in my mind.. almost never, in fact.. so that the abstract image I create is not quite there, but it gets to the point where I can leave it.
* Bridget Riley quotes
::: riley quotes :::
+ For me nature is not landscape, but the dynamism of visual forces.. an event rather than an appearance. These forces can only be tackled by treating color and form as ultimate identities, freeing them from all descriptive or functional roles.
* Mark Rothko quotes
+ It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.
* Richard Serra quotes
::: serra quotes :::
+ I'm not precious about my work. If you get it out into the urban field it's going to be used or misused but it'll also probably provide a way of people acknowledging what the aesthetic is about because people have to confront it every day.
* Frank Stella quotes
+ I don't like a lot of the stuff that goes on in the art world, but it's hard to be old and like what goes on around you.

* Cy Twombly quotes

+ When I work, I work very fast, but preparing to work can take any length of time.
* Brett Whiteley Quotes
+ Art is the thrilling spark that beats death - thats all.
