* Frank Auerbach quotes
+ I think that the very earliest influence was a horror of having to work in a bank or an office, a desire for a free and creative life.
* Francis Bacon quotes
::: images :: bio :: quotes :::
+ The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.
* Banksy quotes
+ The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.
* Balthus quotes
+ Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language. I don’t know what to say about what I paint, really.
* Sister Wendy Beckett Quotes
+ One of the wonderful things about a museum is how you're jolted into confronting art from strange and wonderful civilizations and you look and learn and expand your horizons.
* William Blake quotes
::: blake quotes :::
+ I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.
* Lewis Carroll quotes
+ Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
* 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.
* Peter Doig quotes
::: doig quotes :::
+ I constantly have to negotiate with my doubts.
* Tracey Emin quotes
::: emin quotes :::
+ I’m a terrible cook, but if I could cook, I would see that as art as well, it’s how much creative energy you put into something.
* Lucian Freud quotes
::: freud quotes :::
+ I remember Francis Bacon would say that he felt he was giving art what he thought it previously lacked. With me, it's what Yeats called the fascination with what's difficult. I'm only trying to do what I can't do.
* Gilbert and George quotes
+ A clergyman once said to us, "Jealousy is a bad thing. But I must confess that I am sometimes jealous of the artist because the artist is closer to creation". (George)
* Antony Gormley quotes
+ 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.
* 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.
* David Hockney quotes
+ There comes a point where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in art know about things or take some little interest. I think that now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes time as well.
* Anish Kapoor quotes
+ We live in a fractured world. I've always seen it as my role as an artist to attempt to make wholeness.
R.B. Kitaj quotes
::: artist :::
+ There are some people who don't like museums because they think of them as tombs, or something negative. I've always loved them. They are to me lighthouses of utopianism and social well-being.
* Henry Moore quotes
::: Moore quotes :::
+ There are universal shapes to which everyone is subconsciously conditioned and to which they can respond if their conscious control does not shut them off.
* Paula Rego quotes
::: rego quotes :::
+ Every change is a form of liberation. My mother used to say a change is always good even if it's for the worse.
* 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.
* Charles Saatchi Quotes
+ There are no rules about investment. Sharks can be good. Artist’s dung can be good. Oil on canvas can be good. There’s a squad of conservators out there to look after anything an artist decides is art.
* Jenny Saville quotes
+ I like making work in my studio day in and day out, but I'm not so interested in the business side.
* Euan Uglow quotes
::: uglow quotes :::
+ I'm painting an idea not an ideal. Basically I'm trying to paint a structured painting full of controlled, and therefore potent, emotion.
