Art Quotes

When I seem to be uninspired, I sometimes help give myself a kick start by reading through quotes. Here are a few of my favorite quotes related to art that never let me down.

Art does not solve problems but makes us aware of their existence. It opens our eyes to see and our brain to imagine.
-- Magdalena Abakanowicz

My mother said to me, "If you become a soldier, you'll be a general; if you become a monk, you'll end up as the Pope." Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.
-- Pablo Picasso

Art is not about thinking something up. It is the opposite -- getting something down. -- Julia Cameron
