Art Quote of the Day

IMG_1644“Between opposites lies the path………

flexibility vs. structure

frenzy vs. lethargy

anarchy vs. order

insurgency vs. obedience

logic vs. instinct

simplicity vs. abundance

seriousness vs. silliness

work vs. play

The work we do as artists can be seen as that of finding points of balance between opposing forces and concepts and representing them visually.  Sometimes the balance is confined to a narrow space, sometimes broad.  Try this: identify the “extremes” that frame as many aspects of your project as you can identify and look for  the appropriate points of balance between them.”
