Art Quote of the Day

” You are obliged to go off at a tangent if you want to stop going round in circles.”

Alan Fletcher , from the book, Picturing and Poeting

” The tactile delights of precise delineation, the silent paradise of the camera lucida, and the precision of poetry in taxonomic description represent the artistic side of the thrill which accumulation of new knowledge, absolutely useless to the layman, gives its first begetter….There is no science without fancy, and no art without facts.”

Vladimir Nabokov
