The world doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?
Science is what we understand well enough to explain to a computer; art is everything else.
Donald Ervin Knuth
When you draw something it lives and when you photograph it it dies.
Artists are, above all, men who want to become inhuman.
Art is too serious to be taken seriously.
Treat a work of art like a prince: let it speak to you first.
Art is vice. You don't wed it, you rape it.
Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint you can on it.
Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.
In art as in love, instinct is enough.
If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way... things I had no words for.
Now art should never try to be popular. The public should try to make itself artistic.
Art is whether or not there is a scream in him wanting to get out in a special way.
Art never comes from happiness.
Dive again and again into the river of uncertainty. Create in the dark, only then can you recognize the light.
Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.
I shut my eyes in order to see.
