"What do you think an artist is? ...he is a political being, constantly aware of the heart breaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. Painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war."— Pablo Picasso
"The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel." -Piet Mondrian"Art shouldn't be something that you go quietly into an art gallery and dip your forelock and say 'I have to be very quiet, I'm in here amongst the art.' It's here, art's everywhere. It's how you use your eyes. It's about the enjoyment of visual things. And it's certainly not for any one group of people." -Ken Done
"The function of Art is to disturb. Science reassures." George BraqueArt is either plagiarism or revolution.Paul Gauguin
“It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see." - Anais Nin"What moves those of genius, what inspires their work is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.” -Eugene Delacroix"Anonymous, what's your name?" - Nicole
I can't bear art that you can walk round and admire. A book should be either a bandit or a rebel or a man in the crowd. D.H. LawrenceNicole my name is Dennis.
