Art Quotes for February 27
I have simply wished to assert the reasoned and independent feeling of my own individuality within a total knowledge of tradition.
::: Henri Matisse :::
My heart beats more for a raw, average vulgar art, which doesn't live between sleepy fairy-tale moods and poetry but rather concedes a direct entrance to the fearful, commonplace, splendid and the average grotesque banality in life.
::: Max Beckman :::
Art Quotes for February 25
I wished to suggest by means of a simple nude, a certain long-lost barbaric luxury.
::: Paul Gauguin :::
I am not strictly speaking mad, for my mind is absolutely normal in the intervals, and even more so than before. But during the attacks it is terrible - and then I lose consciousness of everything. But that spurs me on to work and to seriousness, as a miner who is always in danger makes haste in what he does.
::: Vincent van Gogh :::
Art Quotes for February 23
My instinct about painting says, 'if you don't think about it, it's right.'
As soon as you have to decide and choose, it's wrong. And the more you decide about, the more wrong it gets.
::: Andy Warhol :::
I really do live for the future, because when I'm eating a box of candy, I can't wait to taste the last piece.
::: Andy Warhol :::
Art Quotes for February 16
When the creations of a genius collide with the mind of a layman, and produce an empty sound, there is little doubt as to which is at fault..

Art Quotes for February 13
Learning is an active process. We learn by doing..

Color is crucial in painting, but it is very hard to talk about. There is almost nothing you can say that holds up as a generalization, because it depends on too many factors: size, modulation, the rest of the field, a certain consistency that color has with forms, and the statement you're trying to make..
::: Roy Lichtenstein :::
Art Quotes for February 11
Truth and reality in art do not arise until you no longer understand what you are doing and are capable of but nevertheless sense a power that grows in proportion to your resistance..
::: Henri Matisse :::
Business art is the step that comes after Art. I started as a commercial artist, and I want to finish as a business artist..
::: Andy Warhol :::
Art Quotes for February 9
The men I painted were all in extreme situations, and the scream is a transcription of their pain..
::: Francis Bacon :::
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 February 6
The life which is not examined is not worth living..
::: Plato :::
You are lost the instant you know what the result will be..
::: Juan Gris :::
Art Quotes for February 4
I had reservations about making art a business, but I got over it..
::: Mary Boone :::
When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities..
::: Deepak Chopra :::
Art Quotes for February 2
All mankind's inner feelings eventually manifest themselves as an outer reality..
::: Stuart Wilde :::
You really can't bring about anything new with art. I knew that already as a child. One can try to change the world for oneself, but exhibitions are, actually, quite superflous..
::: Martin Kippenberger :::
