So true! I love Matisse's paper cuts. They really are amazing.
Yes, I like mediums which make you express yourself with so few elements. There's another quote by G. K. Chesterton: "Art is limitation. The essence of every picture is the frame."
Hi, Thinker. I just yesterday found your blog. And I am thrilled and very happy to have done so. You have compiled so much to think about, enjoy, and take comfort in.In a film on Swedish television about the painter Erland Cullberg he mentioned Rouault. While looking for paintings by Rouault on the internet I found one to be really beautiful, and that one was linked to your blog with the quotation from May 8...I will visit your blog often.Thank you.
Thanks Edman, glad you like the blog. Welcome!
How true! It reminds me of our discussion on "dry" creative periods and the struggle artists sometimes live with their art. I am truly happy with my work when I feel I have fought with my medium and not totally controlled it from the start; otherwise it's just doing the same work all over again and it's not so interesting :)
I agree, it is funny how artist is in a way imprisoned in his medium while he works. For me creation is sometimes like wrestling with the material, winning and losing battles with it. It's like a duel.
