QUOTES to MOTIVATE

Postby St.Luke » Thu Apr 16, 2015 1:25 am

I invite ASC members to post their favourite ART QUOTES here.
Let this thread be a source of therapeutic inspiration.


I'll start with one of my favorites.

Art is what you can get away with.
Andy Warhol

If you're not trying to be real, you don't have to get it right. That's art.
Andy Warhol

There is no blue without yellow and without orange.
Vincent Van Gogh

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

If a man devotes himself to art, much evil is avoided that happens otherwise if one is idle.
Albrecht Durer

What beauty is, I know not, though it adheres to many things.

If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky,
from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
Pablo Picasso

“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
― Pablo Picasso

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

Power is never given. It is only taken.
So do what you do without asking for power.
Learn how to use your personal power.
Then create what you must.

I've always found Andy Warhol's quotes to be motivational and funny
"Don't pay any attention to what they write about you.Just measure it in inches"(LOL)
"If you're not trying to be real,you don't have to get it right.That's art"
"I'd asked about 10-15 people for suggestions.finally one lady friends asked the right question:'Well what do you love most?'That's how I started to paint money."

"If you're not trying to be real,you don't have to get it right.That's art" - Andy Warhol.
"There has to be a touch of the real in the unreal." - Whomever.
We can look at Andy's Cans and Jackie-O on large canvas and laugh at the absurdity of
those icons being' so large in life they literally take up your whole 'wall', so to speak.
The reality is that the subjects look like who or what they are.
