contemporary drawing theory

What is art ?

Just because you can't see art doesn't mean the drawing doesn't see you.

Art is not about accuracy, it's about everything and nothing, perfection is boring.

"There are no rules for how we come by our theories. We can dream them up, see them in our tea leaves or take them out of the library. It doesn't matter."

John D. Barrow

Modern thought has re-oriented itself around visual paradigms.

Man Ray, JWTM

Every drawing tells you something different for insight into what human beings really are. Three dimensional scene placed on two dimensional surface means that one dimension may be missing
