Art - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

You know how there`s time-based art? Movies, music, plays, it`s all time-based art. There`s a beginning, and a middle and an end. You have to see it from the beginning to the end. You`re restrained to that timeline... That way of experiencing it. But then there`s paintings. No beginning, no middle, no end. You see what you want to see when you want to see it. No restrictions, it`s just there.

When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, `I am going to produce a work of art`. I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.

George Orwell

Art is I; Science is We.

Claude Bernard

We are not defined by our things. It`s not the clothes that we wear, the cars that we drive, the art we acquire - it`s not where we live - but how we live that defines us.
