THE PURPOSE OF ART - QUOTES

1.
'' The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. ''      Pablo Picasso
2.
'' We have art in order not to die of the truth. ''         Friedrich Nietzsche


3. '' It was the job of art to bring true feelings alive. To shock people into awareness. ''         Michael Crichton

4.
'' Art is the one form of human energy in the whole world, which really works for union, and destroys the barriers between man and man. It is the continual, unconscious replacement, however fleeting, of oneself by another; the real cement of human life; the everlasting refreshment and renewal. For, what is grievous, dompting, grim, about our lives is that we are shut up within ourselves, with an itch to get outside ourselves. And to be stolen away from ourselves by Art is a momentary relaxation from that itching, a minute's profound, and as it were secret, enfranchisement. ''        John Galsworthy

3.

''We grow small trying to be great.''


  David Hockney

MEASURING THE UNIVERSE BY ROMAN ONDAK, at tate

Image
Roman Ondak, Measuring the Universe
'' Starting as an empty white room, Roman Ondak’s Measuring the Universe at Tate St Ives has grown through the contribution of around 90’000 participants to a constellation of black marks. Through the simple action of measuring oneself, Ondak’s work doesn’t just expand on ideas of space and the universal but also the personal, creating a growing living artwork that questions just what a museum is for.

LEONARDO DA VINCI ON BEING AN ARTIST

LEONARDO DA VINCI



1.

It reflects no great honour on a painter to be able to execute one thing well.


2.

That painter who has no doubts will achieve little.


3.

Nothing is more apt to deceive us than our own judgement of our work. We derive more benefit from having our faults pointed out by our enemies than from hearing the opinions of friends.


4.

Study the science of art and the art of science.


5.

Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.


LEONARDO DA VINCI



AMANJIRI - AMAN RESORTS

THE SPIRITUAL IN ART - KANDINSKY

       Concerning the Spiritual in Art by Kandinsky Quotes:


1.

“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul.” 

2.
"Just as each spoken word rouses an internal vibration, so does every object represented."

3.
"There is no 'must' in art, because art is always free."

4.
"Everything is at first a matter of feeling."

5.
"It is evident therefore that color harmony must rest ultimately on purposive playing upon the human soul; this is one of the guiding principles of internal necessity."
