“All art is quite useless”.(Oscar Wilde)
“For most of history, Anonymous was a woman”. (Virginia Woolf)
“When I think of art, I think of beauty. Beauty is the mystery of life. It is not in the eye, it is in the mind. In our minds there is awareness of perfection”.
” Oude meesters kenden hun materialen. Juiste samenstellingen en veranderingen waaraan elementen onderhevig zijn.Voor kunst moet je de chemie van de dingen begrijpen, letterlijk en figuurlijk.”
“There are so many things that art can’t do. It can’t bring the dead back to life, it can’t mend arguments between friends, or cure aids, or halt the pace of climate change. All the same, it does have some extraordinary functions, some add negotiating ability between people, including people who never meet and yet who infiltrate and enrich each other’s lives. It does have a capacity to create intimacy, it does have a way of healing wounds, and better yet of making it apparent that not all wounds need healing and not all scars are ugly. ”
“I‘m not sick. I am broken. But I am happy to be alive as long as I can Paint”.
“Creating is the most intense excitement one can come to know”.
“Every meaningful work of art is unrealisable- it exposes the nothing that is hidden deep inside the here and now”.
(Laszlo F. Földenyi)
