Immature artists imitate. Mature artists steal.
My love of fine art increased - the more of it I saw, the more of it I wanted to see.
Art begins with resistance - at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor.
By the work one knows the workman.
Jean de La Fontaine
I cry out for order and find it only in art.
Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.
I think about my work every minute of the day.
I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.
Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued.
When I work, and in my art, I hold hands with God.
Artists don't make objects. Artists make mythologies.
Art is man's expression of his joy in labor.
Henry A. Kissinger
Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
I like to pretend that my art has nothing to do with me.
Art doesn't transform. It just plain forms.
An artist is never ahead of his time but most people are far behind theirs.
No heirloom of humankind captures the past as do art and language.
I've been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.
The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist.
Art hurts. Art urges voyages - and it is easier to stay at home.
