Slogan by artist Bob and Roberta Smith:
I use the gallery as if it were a doctor. I come for ideas and help – to look at situations within painting, rather than paintings. (Lucian Freud)
Louise Bourgeois, Artist (1911-2010)
‘Trust yourself. In your art you must tell your own story, and if you tell your own story you will be interesting’.
‘Art is a representation of our devotion to life.’
‘I don’t want to be interesting, I want to be good.’
‘The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.’
‘Picturing things, taking a view, is what makes us human; art is making sense and giving shape to that sense.’
