A Quote by Alison L Mackie on painting, risk, art, expression, expose, alison mackie, and artist

So worried was I that people would see through the painting into my soul - and guess at secret Alison stuff - that I scraped the paint off the canvas. It was too risky to expose what everyone hides...And yet isn't that the job of the artist? Next step is to take the risk - to work more deeply. To expose that which cannot be expressed any other way. That is art. Scary and exciting.

A Quote by William Faulkner on dreams, art, writer, writing, creativity, and artist

Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why. He is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg, or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done. The writer's only responsibility is to his art.

William Faulkner (1897 - 1962)

The need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all.

A Quote by Vincent Van Gogh on artist, searching, and involved

"I am an artist... It's self-evident that what that word implies is looking for something all the time without ever finding it in full. It is the opposite of saying, 'I know all about it. I've already found it.' As far as I'm concerned, the word means, 'I am looking. I am hunting for it. I am deeply involved.'"

~Vincent Van Gogh~

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on space, nature, matter, art, and artist

In the fabric of space and in the nature of matter, as in a great work of art, there is, written small, the artist's signature.

A Quote by Marc Chagall on art, wonder, marc, chagall, artist, artists, paint, painting, and world

The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep.
