Friendly metaphors and idiosyncratic symbols give the illusion of art and it's that counts. Difficult drawings turn into easy drawings, unnecessary skill is boring art, seen as locally overlapping practices, each with their own constitutive norms and values.
The external world is not independent of our minds. Ideologues are seldom distracted by images that conflict with their preconceptions, because silly Hegelian idealism is one of the least harmful things known to mankind. Though impasto typically conveys dynamism and spontaneity, here it rigidly describes static model from the back, avoiding to face certain art.
We need idealism because the world is not a rational place and the arts are the method for fixing it.
Idealism bends artistic topicality.
Only believe in unrealistic ideals of the human body. The mind is the most elementary reality.
Emile Zola, Patience brings rewards.
Artworks make people think differently. Artworks challenge others, because as you get others to think differently, you’re also challenging them. Solid matter just an illusion.
Good art gets you to say things you really didn’t think you would.
Quixotic idealists believe there is a huge role for arts and idealism in an increasingly metamaterial funny world. The arts matter because they work beyond and outside everyday routine categories. The whole look of punk aims to disrupt the social play of obsessively conformist people.
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
Personification of art sat there waiting for Mr. Death to visit
And the noble, seminal switch is a stuttering candle.
