ARTISTIC ENGLISH

QUOTES AND APHORISMS

There is the falsely mystical view of art that assumes a kind of supernatural inspiration, a possession by universal forces unrelated to questions of power and privilege or the artist's relation to bread and blood. In this view, the channel of art can only become clogged and misdirected by the artist's concern with merely temporary and local disturbances. The song is higher than the struggle.
Adrienne Rich

The art of creation is older than the art of killing.
Andrei Voznesensky

Contrary to popular belief an artist is never ahead of his time, but most people are far behind theirs.
Edward Varese

It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, and if you can walk around it it's a sculpture.
Source Unknown

A work of art that contains theories is like an object on which the price tag has been left.
Marcel Proust

He bores me. He ought to have stuck to his flying machine. [On Leonardo Da Vinci]
Pierre Auguste Renoir

Art is too serious to be taken seriously.
Ad Reinhardt


Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments. An artist recreates those aspects of reality which represent his fundamental view of man's nature.
Ayn Rand

Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth.
George Sand

All art is quite useless.
Oscar Wilde

I am an artist… I am here to live out loud.
Emile Zola

Art for art's sake is a philosophy of the well-fed.
Yu Cao

Not even the visionary or mystical experience ever lasts very long. It is for art to capture that experience, to offer it to, in the case of literature, its readers; to be, for a secular, materialist culture, some sort of replacement for what the love of god offers in the world of faith.
Salman Rushdie

Pictures deface walls more often than they decorate them.
Frank Lloyd Wright

Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
Rebecca West


Art is the symbol of the two noblest human efforts: to construct and to refrain from destruction.
Simone Weil

All great art, and today all great artlessness, must appear extreme to the mass of men, as we know them today. It springs from the anguish of great souls. From the souls of men not formed, but deformed in factories whose inspiration is pelf.
Alexander Trocchi


What distinguishes a great artist from a weak one is first their sensibility and tenderness; second, their imagination, and third, their industry.
John Ruskin

A primary function of art and thought is to liberate the individual from the tyranny of his culture in the environmental sense and to permit him to stand beyond it in an autonomy of perception and judgment.
Lionel Trilling

It is not in life, but in art that self-fulfillment is to be found.
George E. Woodberry

The artist must conceive with warmth yet execute with coolness.
Winkelmann
