The subject of drawing is drawing itself, a metaphor for life’s intensity and transience.
Art is something inside of you, waiting to get out, crazy as an artistic statement. The time the paper spends consuming the arts looks awesome to the artist.
Postmodern natural magic: That's how fine art works, you base proof upon proof. We have to be careful about confusing cause and effect.
Art should be about nothing, said the easel weasel, weaving a tapestry of emotions and thoughts that are at once deeply personal and universally resonant.
The meaning of any situation is found in the frame within which we view the picture.
For the proof, it is a luxury to be understood, because artspeak is a closed system of self-referential language peppered with fanciful cloudy and mysterious words.
It is a nice naive concept which perhaps can be made into a rigorous theory. Art being only our ignorance of real causes, whether mermaids exist or not, art rules such as ideal body proportion would remain arbitrary.
A comprehensible proof is not necessarily the shortest one, but a proof of small width.

A single artistic hotbed disproves infinity, open science widens the net.
Art is not in the box, interesting art is in the gap. Be an outsider.
"Increments are the forms I understand, and repeating and expanding them to create systems and structures are acts of ritual."
To those art-world people who do not think out of the playful art box.

What exactly, Cornejo wondered, was she getting the award for? Proving you could refuse to play the game and still survive? The deeper the pit you're falling into, the more chance you have to learn how to fly. She wanted even less to be a cog in a machine.
The artist's morality lies in the force and truth of his description.
Jules Barbey D'Aurevilly, the bicycle for the mind that Steve Jobs envisioned as a Macintosh computer as an analogy played a dynamic role in shaping the world around us.
