Quotes from artists, some well known and others perhaps new to you, are added to inspire you and energize you. If you have collected some good ones send them along and I’ll put them in the blog.
Here are a few to start sharing:
“On the floor I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more a part of the painting, since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides and literally be in the painting.” – Jackson Pollock
“The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves.” – Willem de Kooning
“The child is really an artist, and the artist should be like a child, but he should not stay a child. He must become an artist. That means he cannot permit himself to become sentimental or something like that. He must know what he is doing” – Hans Hofmann
