Abstract Art quotes by Kenneth Tynan
#4. The buttocks are the most aesthetically pleasing part of the body because they are non-functional. Although they conceal an essential orifice, these pointless globes are as near as the human form can ever come to abstract art. #Quote by Kenneth Tynan
Abstract Art quotes by Arkady Strugatsky
#5. It's a common observation that all science fiction novels say as much about the time of their composition as they do about the future. As they wrote Hard to Be a God, the Strugatsky brothers were working under considerable political pressure. Following Khrushchev's infamous visit to an exhibition of abstract art in 1962 ("dog shit" was one of his more printable responses) a wave of panicked ideological house-cleaning swept through the Soviet Union's artistic establishment. For SF writers, as Boris Strugatsky remembers, this resulted in a reminder that the only truly orthodox subject was "the collision of two worlds. #Quote by Arkady Strugatsky
Abstract Art quotes by Anais Nin
#6. I am a woman first of all. At the core of my work was a journal written for the father I lost, loved and wanted to keep. I am personal. I am essentially human, not intellectual. I do not understand abstract act. Only art born of love, passion, pain. #Quote by Anais Nin
Abstract Art quotes by Pablo Picasso
#7. Abstract art is only painting. And what's so dramatic about that? There is no abstract art. One must always begin with something. Afterwards one can remove all semblance of reality; there is no longer any danger as the idea of the object has left an indelible imprint. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Abstract Art quotes by Richard Schmid
#8. I honestly believe students of painting in the next century will laugh at the abstract art movement. They will marvel at such a drawn-out regression in the plastic arts. #Quote by Richard Schmid
Abstract Art quotes by Richard Howells
#9. Do not be afraid of the word 'theory'. Yes, it can sound dauntingly abstract at times, and in the hands of some writers can appear to have precious little to do with the actual, visual world around us. Good theory however, is an awesome thing. [ ... ] But unless we actually use it, it borders on the metaphysical and might as well not be used at all. #Quote by Richard Howells
Abstract Art quotes by Piet Mondrian
#10. Abstract art is not the creation of another reality but the true vision of reality. #Quote by Piet Mondrian
Abstract Art quotes by Arshile Gorky
#11. Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes ... Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas. #Quote by Arshile Gorky
Abstract Art quotes by Kenneth Clark
#12. No nude, however abstract, should fail to arouse in the spectator some vestige of erotic feeling, even if it be only the faintest shadow - and if it does not do so it is bad art and false morals. #Quote by Kenneth Clark
Abstract Art quotes by Laura Nyro
#13. There are no limitations with a song. To me a song is a little piece of art. It can be whatever you like it to be. You can write the simplest song, and that's lovely, or you can just write a song that is abstract art ... A lot of my songs are very serious, I'm like dead serious about certain things and I feel that I'm writing about the world, through my own eyes ... I have a love for simple basic song structure, although sometimes you'd never know it ... Most of the songs I wrote at night. I would just wake in the middle of the night. That's when I found the space to write. #Quote by Laura Nyro
Abstract Art quotes by Lucian Freud
#14. The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real. #Quote by Lucian Freud
Abstract Art quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#15. A work of art is an abstract or epitome of the world. It is the result or expression of nature, in miniature. For, although the works of nature are innumerable and all different, the result or the expression of them all is similar and single. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Abstract Art quotes by Robert Genn
#16. Abstract understanding doesn't mean arbitrary sloshing and messing. Abstract art is controlled visual magic based on laws and methodology. Abstraction generally involves implication, suggestion and mystery rather that obvious description. Like a good poem, a good abstraction attacks your feelings before your understanding. Abstraction within realism adds zest and excitement to otherwise dull subject matter. Abstract understanding takes time and patience. #Quote by Robert Genn
Abstract Art quotes by Jackson Pollock
#17. Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was. #Quote by Jackson Pollock
Abstract Art quotes by Peggy Guggenheim
#18. I wore one of my Tanguy earrings and one made by Calder in order to show my impartiality between Surrealist and Abstract Art. #Quote by Peggy Guggenheim
Abstract Art quotes by Paul Isaacs
#19. Having Simultanagnosia (object blindness), Prosopagnosia (face blindness) and Semantic Agnosia (meaning blindness) goes in my favour with regards to abstract art living in world full of fragmented pieces when I draw it is in real time no visual memory means no "pre-formatted" picture in my mind so I go where my hand takes it's like journey that is happening in the moment, hence why I drew these without my lenses on. When I was younger I would draw pictures by "route" which made it a appear that I had a visual memory (cobbling together things out of context and making a contextual image) #Quote by Paul Isaacs
Abstract Art quotes by Storm Jameson
#20. Fear is the deep motive of abstract art - fear of a repellent civilization which is dominated by the power of things ... who can be surprised if, more sensitive than the others, the artist is terrified by the power things have acquired over us? #Quote by Storm Jameson
Abstract Art quotes by Etel Adnan
#21. Abstract art was the quivalent of poetic expression; I didn't need to use words,but colors and lines. I didn't need to belong to a language-oriented culture but to an open form of expression. #Quote by Etel Adnan
Abstract Art quotes by Al Capp
#22. Abstract art is a product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered. #Quote by Al Capp
Abstract Art quotes by William Westney
#23. Music, the most abstract and uncanny art, is an eternal river of sound moving through time. We can free ourselves from whatever may be holding us back, and join that flowing river. #Quote by William Westney
Abstract Art quotes by Steven Wright
#24. I paint; I draw and paint - I've been doing that since I was in third grade, drawing realistically and then changing to abstract art. That was my first creative thing before guitar or comedy. #Quote by Steven Wright
Abstract Art quotes by Karen Elizabeth Gordon
#25. Art is only abstract when you look the other way. #Quote by Karen Elizabeth Gordon
Abstract Art quotes by Jackson Pollock
#26. It [abstract art] should be enjoyed just as music is enjoyed after a while you may like it or you may not. #Quote by Jackson Pollock
Abstract Art quotes by Ben Shahn
#27. To abstract is to draw out the essence of a matter. To abstract in art is to separate certain fundamentals from irrelevant material which surrounds them. #Quote by Ben Shahn
Abstract Art quotes by Brittany Howard
#28. I'm just really impressed by oil paintings - I don't see how people do it! That's the style I like: classic oil paintings. Abstract art just isn't my thing. #Quote by Brittany Howard
Abstract Art quotes by Hans Hofmann
#29. What goes on in abstract art is the proclaiming of aesthetic principles ... It is in our own time that we have become aware of pure aesthetic considerations. Art never can be imitation. #Quote by Hans Hofmann
Abstract Art quotes by Derek R. Audette
#30. I can never fathom it when people say things like "I can't understand abstract art!" Or: "Abstract art is junk!" Or: "Abstract art isn't as valid as realism!" #Quote by Derek R. Audette
Abstract Art quotes by Ben Nicholson
#31. Realism' has been abandoned in the search for reality: the 'principal objective' of abstract art is precisely this reality. #Quote by Ben Nicholson
Abstract Art quotes by Luhraw
#32. Before, I could only guess oh who I was. Now, thanks to my art, I know who I am. #Quote by Luhraw
Abstract Art quotes by Robert Motherwell
#33. Nothing as drastic an innovation as abstract art could have come in to existence, save as the consequence of a most profound, relentless, unquenchable need. The need is for felt experience - intense, immediate, direct, subtle, unified, warm, vivid, rhythmic. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Abstract Art quotes by Debasish Mridha
#34. Writing is an abstract art of drawing pictures of the conscious and subconscious mind with words. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Abstract Art quotes by Bauvard
#35. It is so wearisome having to represent things. That is why I refuse to look at abstract art. It is much too suggestive of the style of my thoughts, and I never think about my thoughts. #Quote by Bauvard
Abstract Art quotes by Robert Breault
#36. Abstract art is a fundamental distrust of the theory of reality concocted by the eyes. #Quote by Robert Breault
Abstract Art quotes by Jean Helion
#37. I understand abstract art as an attempt to feed imagination with a world built through the basic sensations of the eyes. #Quote by Jean Helion
Abstract Art quotes by Wassily Kandinsky
#38. Abstract art places a new world, which on the surface has nothing to do with 'reality,' next to the 'real' world. #Quote by Wassily Kandinsky
Abstract Art quotes by Dominique De Menil
#39. But nobody is visually naive any longer. We are cluttered with images, and only abstract art can bring us to the threshold of the divine. #Quote by Dominique De Menil
Abstract Art quotes by Richard Diebenkorn
#40. In a successful painting everything is integral - all the parts belong to the whole. If you remove an aspect or element you are removing its wholeness. #Quote by Richard Diebenkorn
Abstract Art quotes by Roy Lichtenstein
#41. I think we're much smarter than we were. Everybody knows that abstract art can be art, and most people know that they may not like it, even if they understand there's another purpose to it. #Quote by Roy Lichtenstein
Abstract Art quotes by Carl Andre
#42. Lenin thought abstract art was a conspiracy by the bourgeois to demoralize the proletariat. Yeah, socialist realism! #Quote by Carl Andre
Abstract Art quotes by Robert Motherwell
#43. Abstract art is uniquely modern. It is a fundamentally romantic response to modern life - rebellious, individualistic, unconventional, sensitive, irritable. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Abstract Art quotes by Brittainy C. Cherry
#44. And nail about it because you think it's meaningless, but the next thing you know you're sitting in a library staring at books filled with pictures of abstract artwork and your heart feels ready to explode." Levi turned to me as I stepped out from behind the corner. Our eyes locked, and he kept speaking. "Because you get it, you know? You get that the colors and the lines and the curves aren't trying to be like everything else in the world. You understand that the abstract art is standing out against the norm because it's the only way abstract art knows how to stand. And you get so fucking happy because it's so beautiful. And unique. And edgy. And ... abstract." The room filled with silence as the three of us stood with no words #Quote by Brittainy C. Cherry
Abstract Art quotes by Jonas Mekas
#45. I'm not an abstract artist; I leave that to others. To me, abstract art ended with Kazimir Malevich's 'Black Square.' To continue it is senseless. #Quote by Jonas Mekas
Abstract Art quotes by Donald Judd
#46. Any combining, mixing, adding, diluting, exploiting, vulgarizing, or popularizing of abstract art deprives art of its essence and depraves the artist's artistic consciousness. Art is free, but it is not a free-for-all. #Quote by Donald Judd
Abstract Art quotes by J.G. Ballard
#47. The surrealists, and the modern movement in painting as a whole, seemed to offer a key to the strange postwar world with its threat of nuclear war. The dislocations and ambiguities, in cubism and abstract art as well as the surrealists, reminded me of my childhood in Shanghai. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Abstract Art quotes by S.L. Jennings
#48. I blink rapidly, breaking our reverie and force myself to focus on something,anything, other than his beauty. Or his body. A body I want pressed against mine, limbs and tongues twisted and tangled, our flesh contortioned into X-rated abstract art ... #Quote by S.L. Jennings
Abstract Art quotes by Jean Cocteau
#49. I shall never forget what I saw at the Museum of Modern Art: in a spotless schoolroom, fifty little girls painting away at tables covered with brushes, pots, tubes, bowls, staring into space and sticking out their tongues like the clever animals that ring a bell, tongues lolling and eyes vague. Teachers supervise these young creators of abstract art and slap their wrists if what they paint represents something and dangerously inclines toward realism. The mothers - still at the Picasso stage - are not admitted. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Abstract Art quotes by Michel Gondry
#50. I want to see abstract art move. Especially in the '30s, you had animators doing innovative work, and I was entranced by that. It's basically what you see when you close your eyes, when you fall asleep. #Quote by Michel Gondry
Abstract Art quotes by Meyer Schapiro
#51. The movement of abstract art ... bears within itself at almost every point the mark of the changing material and psychological conditions surrounding modern culture. #Quote by Meyer Schapiro
Abstract Art quotes by Talismanist Giebra
#52. Life is an abstract art, and it's up to you to make sense of it. #Quote by Talismanist Giebra
Abstract Art quotes by Anton Ehrenzweig
#53. Abstract art has helped us to experience the emotional power inherent in pure form. #Quote by Anton Ehrenzweig
Abstract Art quotes by Jackson Pollock
#54. Energy and motion made visible – memories arrested in space #Quote by Jackson Pollock
Abstract Art quotes by Breana Najera
#55. Everyone is trying to perfect beauty but they don't realize it's abstract art. It's not something to perfect. Everyone is already beautiful you just have to find the one other person who can love you the way you deserve to be loved. #Quote by Breana Najera
Abstract Art quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#56. There exist few things more tedious than a discussion of general ideas inflicted by author or reader upon a work of fiction. The purpose of this foreword is not to show that "Bend Sinister" belongs or does not belong to "serious literature" (which is a euphemism for the hollow profundity and the ever-welcome commonplace). I have never been interested in what is called the literature of social comment (in journalistic and commercial parlance: "great books"). I am not "sincere," I am not "provocative," I am not "satirical." I am neither a didacticist nor an allegorizer. Politics and economics, atomic bombs, primitive and abstract art forms, the entire Orient, symptoms of "thaw" in Soviet Russia, the Future of Mankind, and so on, leave me supremely indifferent. As in the case of my "Invitation to a Beheading" - with which this book has obvious affinities - automatic comparisons between "Bend Sinister" and Kafka's creations or Orwell's cliches would go merely to prove that the automaton could not have read either the great German writer or the mediocre English one. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Abstract Art quotes by Keaton Stromberg
#57. Beauty is a type of art everyone is trying to perfect, but no one realizes it's abstract art. #Quote by Keaton Stromberg
Abstract Art quotes by Constantin Brancusi
#58. When you see a fish you don't think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water. Well, I've tried to express just that. If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirits. #Quote by Constantin Brancusi
Abstract Art quotes by Lawren Harris
#59. Abstract art is a creative interplay between the conscious and the unconscious, with the conscious mind making all the final decisions and in control throughout. #Quote by Lawren Harris
Abstract Art quotes by Jean Dubuffet
#60. There is no such thing as abstract art, or else all art is abstract, which amounts tot the same thing. Abstract art no more exists than does curved art yellow art or green art. #Quote by Jean Dubuffet
Abstract Art quotes by Vera Wang
#61. I was an art history major, but never specifically contemporary. I would say where I really stopped were the abstract expressionists in the New York school. #Quote by Vera Wang
Abstract Art quotes by Howard Terpning
#62. I personally don't care for abstract art. I have always felt, 'To each his own.' There's art out there for everybody. #Quote by Howard Terpning
Abstract Art quotes by Debasish Mridha
#63. Philosophy is the abstract art of thoughts and perceptions that form colors of words and languages that paint the canvas of our minds. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Abstract Art quotes by Kathleen Hanna
#64. The only thing I collect is art. I collect it because I like looking at it. A lot of it is really personal stuff that my friends have made, paintings that my husband's mother made, and things that I bought. I buy abstract art on eBay, and I buy some outsider art on eBay, or what is called folk art, I buy a lot of. I have a lot of professional art work as well as more stuff my friends' kids make. To have a wall of art to look at, I feel really surrounded by love, because so much of the work is related to my friendships. #Quote by Kathleen Hanna
Abstract Art quotes by Bill Vaughan
#65. Books are delightful when prosperity happily smiles; when adversity threatens, they are inseparable comforters. They give strength to human compacts, nor are grave opinions brought forward without books. Arts and sciences, the benefits of which no mind can calculate. depend upon books. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Abstract Art quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#66. The more abstract the truth you wish to teach, the more you need to seduce the senses to it. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Abstract Art quotes by John Baldessari
#67. I can't imagine a life without thinking, doing art. I don't feel any need to be a world traveler or an adventurer. I'm very happy doing what I'm doing. I think somehow I know that I should have a larger vision of art, but I can't think of what that would be. #Quote by John Baldessari
Abstract Art quotes by Nikki S. Lee
#68. People think a big camera and big lighting will make art, and I want to break that rule. If you have a great concept, it can be art. #Quote by Nikki S. Lee
Abstract Art quotes by Robert Lowell
#69. But sometimes everything I write
with the threadbare art of my eye
seems a snapshot #Quote by Robert Lowell
Abstract Art quotes by Tammara Webber
#70. Your father is Dr. Lucas
one of the foremost minds in modern economics
and you're studying art? What the hell are you going to do with a degree in art?"
She drew herself up to all five foot two, eyes flashing, and said, "I'm going to make the world more beautiful. What are you going to do? Make money? #Quote by Tammara Webber
Abstract Art quotes by David Alfaro Siqueiros
#71. Art is a weapon that penetrates the eyes, the ears, the deepest and subtlest human feelings. #Quote by David Alfaro Siqueiros
Abstract Art quotes by Jordan Weisman
#72. Great art is like that. You can think you're a real hard-ass, with no use for artsy-fartsy jazz and then one of the greats hits you like a bullet though the heart. People talk about Tiger Woods, or Michael Jordan but if you really want to see a dude playing above the rim, spend half an hour looking at Picasso's from between the wars. The greats don't just want to score they want to dunk in your face. #Quote by Jordan Weisman
Abstract Art quotes by Irum Zahra
#73. Lately
I've been dreaming about you
About us
Sharing our secrets
Talking, even if we argued
Kept talking, till we slept
Maybe I woke up
On the wrong side of bed
Maybe I thought about you
Just a little too much #Quote by Irum Zahra
Abstract Art quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#74. No art like the art displayed in our salvation, no cunning workmanship like that beheld in the righteousness of the saints. Justification has engrossed learned pens in all ages of the church, and will be the theme of admiration in eternity. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Abstract Art quotes by Anthony W. Ivins
#75. The word of the Lord never comes to us as an opinion, no attempt is made to support it by argument, it comes as a definite, abstract statement of fact. So it is from the first words ... to the last, the works of the Father are declared as facts, not theories. #Quote by Anthony W. Ivins
Abstract Art quotes by Steven Pinker
#76. Left to our own devices, we are apt to backslide to our instinctive conceptual ways. This underscores the place of education in a scientifically literate democracy, and even suggests a statement of purpose for it (a surprisingly elusive principle in higher education today). The goal of education is to make up for the shortcomings in our instinctive ways of thinking about the physical and social world. And education is likely to succeed not by trying to implant abstract statements in empty minds but by taking the mental models that are our standard equipment, applying them to new subjects in selective analogies, and assembling them into new and more sophisticated combinations. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Abstract Art quotes by Abraham Cowley
#77. Curs'd be that wretch (Death's factor sure) who brought Dire swords into the peaceful world, and taught Smiths (who before could only make The spade, the plough-share, and the rake) Arts, in most cruel wise Man's left to epitomize! #Quote by Abraham Cowley
Abstract Art quotes by Richard Llewellyn
#78. There is beautiful you are."
"No," said Marged, between a sigh and a sob.
"Yes," said Owen.
"No," said Marged, not so certain.
"Behold," Owen said, from Solomon. "thou art fair. Thou hast dove's eyes."
"Dove's eyes are small." Marged said.
"Yours are so big they are my whole world," said Owen. #Quote by Richard Llewellyn
Abstract Art quotes by Joy Williams
#79. I believe that God is (and must be) a transcendent presence in any worthy work of art. #Quote by Joy Williams
Abstract Art quotes by Marleen S. Barr
#80. Executive Severance, a laugh out loud comic mystery novel, epitomizes our current cultural moment in that it is born from the juxtaposition of authorial invention and technological communication innovation. Merging creative text with new electronic context, Robert K. Blechman's novel, which originally appeared as Twitter entries, can be read on a cell phone. His tweets which merge to form an entertaining novel can't be beat. Hold the phone; exalt in the mystery-engage with Blechman's story which signals the inception of a new literary art form. #Quote by Marleen S. Barr
Abstract Art quotes by Zhuge Liang
#81. Good generals select intelligent officers, thoughtful advisors, and brave subordinates. They oversee their troops like a fierce tiger with wings. #Quote by Zhuge Liang
Abstract Art quotes by MHQ
#82. Art is an other door to IMAGINATION. And without imagination nothing is possible. #Quote by MHQ
Abstract Art quotes by David Dobkin
#83. Art is the only thing that can save me from my opinions about the world. I tend to get very worked up about what I see going on, and I feel, you know, impotent to make the kind of changes and the kind of difference that I would like to make. #Quote by David Dobkin
Abstract Art quotes by Helene Hanff
#84. Q (Quiller-Couch) was all by himself my college education. I went down to the public library one day when I was seventeen looking for books on the art of writing, and found five books of lectures which Q had delivered to his students of writing at Cambridge.
"Just what I need!" I congratulated myself. I hurried home with the first volume and started reading and got to page 3 and hit a snag:
Q was lecturing to young men educated at Eton and Harrow. He therefore assumed his students − including me − had read Paradise Lost as a matter of course and would understand his analysis of the "Invocation to Light" in Book 9. So I said, "Wait here," and went down to the library and got Paradise Lost and took it home and started reading it and got to page 3, when I hit a snag:
Milton assumed I'd read the Christian version of Isaiah and the New Testament and had learned all about Lucifer and the War in Heaven, and since I'd been reared in Judaism I hadn't. So I said, "Wait here," and borrowed a Christian Bible and read about Lucifer and so forth, and then went back to Milton and read Paradise Lost, and then finally got back to Q, page 3. On page 4 or 5, I discovered that the point of the sentence at the top of the page was in Latin and the long quotation at the bottom of the page was in Greek. So I advertised in the Saturday Review for somebody to teach me Latin and Greek, and went back to Q meanwhile, and discovered he assumed I not only knew all the plays by Shakespeare, a #Quote by Helene Hanff
Abstract Art quotes by Roberta Smith
#85. You never know when contemporary art is going to insinuate itself into a normally art-free zone. #Quote by Roberta Smith
Abstract Art quotes by Louis Sullivan
#86. An art of expression should begin with childhood, and the lucid use of one's mother tongue should be typical of that art.
The sense of reality should be strengthened from the beginning, yet by no means at the cost of those lofty illusions we call patriotism, veneration, love. #Quote by Louis Sullivan
Abstract Art quotes by Chaim Potok
#87. Art is whether or not there is a scream in him wanting to get out in a special way. #Quote by Chaim Potok
Abstract Art quotes by Daniel Marques
#88. The shortest path to success in art, if I could put it into words, is altruism, but if you don't care about anything in the world, and even get angry at people that show you the truth, how can you be altruistic? #Quote by Daniel Marques
Abstract Art quotes by Edwin Howard Armstrong
#89. Anyone who has had actual contact with the making of the inventions that built the radio art knows that these inventions have been the product of experiment and work based on physical reasoning, rather than on the mathematicians' calculations and formulae. Precisely the opposite impression is obtained from many of our present day text books and publications. #Quote by Edwin Howard Armstrong
Abstract Art quotes by Aril Daine
#90. Love is abstract. It is something you cannot touch nor cannot carry" - Lance Mariano #Quote by Aril Daine
Abstract Art quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#91. Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Abstract Art quotes by Joseph Conrad
#92. From a letter to Barrett H.Clark, 4 May 1918(LL,II,pp.204-5):
my attitude to subjects and expressions, the angles of vision, my methods of composition will, within limits, be always changing
not because I am unstable or unpricipled but because I am free. Or perhaps it may be more exact to say, because I am always trying for freedom
within my limits ... A work of art is seldom limited to one exclusive meaning and not necessarily tending to a definite conclusion. And this for the reason that the nearer it approaches art, the more it acquires a symbolic character. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Abstract Art quotes by Bill Viola
#93. A lot of what making art is, is just being open, and empty. And putting yourself in the right place for things to, literally, come together. #Quote by Bill Viola
Abstract Art quotes by Irving Stone
#94. You are a grand nerveux, Vincent," Doctor Rey had told him. "You never have been normal. But then, no artist is normal; if he were, he wouldn't be an artist. Normal men don't create works of art. They eat, sleep, hold down routine jobs, and die. You are hypersensitive to life and nature; that's why you are able to interpret for the rest of us. But if you are not careful, that very hypersensitiveness will lead you to your destruction. The strain of it breaks every artist in time. #Quote by Irving Stone
Abstract Art quotes by Rodney Yee
#95. Become better listeners. Practice the art of listening in everything you do. Not just listening to yourself and your body, but listening to the people around you, listening to the plant world, the animal world. Really open your ears to what's coming at you. From there, see if you can have the ability to respond instead of react. And that usually comes with listening. If the observation and the listening are deep, then your action will be deep also. #Quote by Rodney Yee
Abstract Art quotes by David J. Skorton
#96. There is a growing evidence that arts education improves student learning and thereby produces better citizens #Quote by David J. Skorton
Abstract Art quotes by Joseph Addison
#97. Let echo, too, perform her part, Prolonging every note with art; And in a low expiring strain, Play all the comfort o'er again. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Abstract Art quotes by Jean-Louis Barrault
#98. The theatre has built a whole art round the actor, based on the man and his double - the actor and his character. #Quote by Jean-Louis Barrault
Abstract Art quotes by Pierce The Veil
#99. If I were you I'd put that away. See you're just wasted and thinking about the past again, darling you'll be okay. #Quote by Pierce The Veil
Abstract Art quotes by Ali Smith
#100. It's so warm it's almost friendly. A friendly work of art. I've never thought such a thing in my life. And look at it. It's never sentimental. It's generous, but it's sardonic too. And whenever it's sardonic, a moment later it's generous again. #Quote by Ali Smith
Abstract Art quotes by Francoise Sagan
#101. Art must take reality by surprise. It takes those moments which are for us merely a moment, plus a moment, plus another moment, and arbitrarily transforms them into a special series of moments held together by a major emotion. #Quote by Francoise Sagan
Abstract Art quotes by Michael Cunningham
#102. The art we produce lives in queasy balance with the art we can imagine the art the room expects. #Quote by Michael Cunningham
Abstract Art quotes by Maria Augusta Von Trapp
#103. What is the usual reaction among our friends and neighbors if in a family something unexpected happens? ... Telephone and [email] are immediately put to work ... and the incident is discussed for days on end. It is no wonder there is no time left in which to ponder on what it might mean, what message God might want to bring home to us by permitting this or that to happen in our lives ... 'To ponder' is an all-but-forgotten art in our days. Who thinks? We don't need to anymore. The TV and [internet] do it for us. #Quote by Maria Augusta Von Trapp
Abstract Art quotes by Colleen Atwood
