Two Quotes on Art

Art world, ivory tower, control tower,
art control, wheeler-dealers world
Art words, world, art critics, art critters
World of business-before-pleasure and vice versa
Living art, living-it-down world
Whorls, whirls, wholes, parts,
Painting is more than the scum of its pots.
Can't you tell your impasto from a holy ground?
Holy smoke

-Ad Reinhardt

The challenge is how to rediscover the act of seeing in this desperate age of speed and information, how to slow down and regain consciousness, and how to enter the world once again with an open mind and a new version of what the future may hold with the prospect that it may actually benefit our lives.

-Robert C. Morgan
