is. The abstract
painters always insist on their connection with the visible reality, while
the so called figurative artists
insist that what they really care about, is the abstract qualities of life.

like it, that's all, whether it's a landscape
You like it. It hits you. You don't have to read
it. The work of art-sculpture
Greenberg Quotes - Art
of the weaknesses
of much abstract
painting is the attempt
to substitute the inventions of the intellect
for a pristine imaginative
conception. The inner
life of a human being is a vast and varied realm and does not concern itself
alone with stimulating arrangements of color,
form and design.
The term 'life' as used
in art is something not
to be held in contempt, for it applies all of its existence, and the province
of art is to react to it and not to shun it. Painting will have to deal more fully
and less obliquely with life and nature's
phenomena before it can again be great.
Quotes - Artists
not an abstractionist.
Im not interested in the relationship
of color or form
or anything else. Im interested only in expressing
basic human emotions:
tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.
Rothko Quotes - Artists
want people to know
what it is they're looking at. But at the same time, the closer they get to the
painting, it's like
going back into childhood.
And it's like an abstract
piece.. it becomes the landscape
of the brush marks rather than just sort of an intellectual landscape.
