Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask.
Quote by Robert Motherwell
It may be that the deep necessity of art is the examination of self-deception.
If you can't find your inspiration by walking around the block one time, go around...
Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you...
Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it.
Wherever art appears, life disappears.
Every man becomes, to a certain degree, what the people he generally converses with are.
