Ornament is crime

Most art symbols are worn-out clichés that have outlived their usefulness, art however resists categories.

Ornament is crime

Adolf Loos

Ancient-modern visual perception

Art is not a tool, it is another way of thinking. Artists who seek perfection in everything are those artists who cannot attain perfection in anything.

Everything is a sign, because pictures think the art world is real.

Adolf Loos

everything is temporary

Donald Judd, How artspeak became the language of science. Ever since art ceased to be mainly decorative, works have often been shown with a ladle of rhetoric. Official art scene is basically a business of cheating.

Signs of art are immaterial, while giving no indication as to whether this is a good or bad thing. No artwork is by definition hypermodern.

The art sign may reveal a view of an hidden picture that reads as a separate drawing. Live forever or die in the attempt. Sgraffito, both as natural phenomenon and as cultural metaphor, is the subject of a painting.

People need art. Art is in the hands of too few people.

It feels like finding a unicorn, talisman recipes from an authentic apocryphal book. This is clearly creating a sense of wonder and whimsy and a problematic situation.

symbol for resilience

We need art models and scientific models, but there is no one paradigm for art making. The dictionary defines paradigm as a pattern or model (life model?).

Communications skills

Absurdity breaks with fate. Symbols for humor are notoriously bad at math. Communications skills are a funny thing. Art has no purpose in mind.

How come nobody noticed art is life? Can a tendency to substitute means for ends be a method? Theoretical models for artists can never fully represent the total complexity of the real ancient-modern world. Beautiful is complicated.

drawing of the unknown

Drawing of the unknown. How could this boring, noisy and confusing image appear in one of the world's leading artsy journals? It's a question which is regularly asked in the business world, but never answered. I'm a work on paper myself in the universe of contemporary craziness. Ancient-modern symbols don't like change.

bluebird of happiness

The fewer things a bluebird of happiness tries to say, the more powerfully it says them. Slow down. Do one thing at a time. Have no fear of perfection, you will never reach it.

Salvador Dali, Good pictures knew anything was possible and life is too short.
