Background Quotes : pic 001338559
Music as background to me becomes like a mosquito, an insect. In the studio we have big speakers, and to me that's the way music should be listened to. When I listen to music, I want to just listen to music.
Background Quotes : pic 001257720
Through the side window, a screen of late-afternoon sunlight is projected onto the wall. Shadows of birds flit across it.
Some shadows are sharp, some shadows are blurry.
I've seen them before in another time and place.
Background Quotes : pic 000263396
In a world of disturbing images, the general body of photography is bland, dealing complacently with nature and treating our preconceptions as insights. Strange, private worlds rarely slip past our guard ...
Background Quotes : pic 001437579

Background Quotes : pic 000883201

Background Quotes : pic 001055114

Background Quotes : pic 001555449
Right in the difficult we must have our joys, our happiness, our dreams: there against the depth of this background, they stand out, there for the first time we see how beautiful they are.

Background Quotes : pic 001656642
The photograph is the most perfect picture. It does not change; it is absolute, and therefore autonomous, unconditional, devoid of style. Both in its way of informing, and in what it informs of, it is my source.

As for the subject matter in my painting ... it is very often an incidental thing in the background, elusive and unclear, that really stirred me.
Background Quotes : pic 001624206
Shadows of what you'll become. Silhouettes.
Background Quotes : pic 001178958
The composition happens as the work progresses. Often the messy background makes it easy to disperse shapes as needed. I'd rather it took over me than I took over it.

Background Quotes : pic 001828164

Background Quotes : pic 001348745
Ll dark hair and blue smudges in the moonlight.
Background Quotes : pic 000072293

Background Quotes : pic 001644661
A landscape clean and crisp in form and colour, rich in inspiration is all that an artist could wish for, begging to be used, and full of inherent possibilities ...
Background Quotes : pic 000531014
My pictures must first be beautiful, but that beauty is not enough. I strive to convey an underlying edge of anxiety, of isolation, of fear.
Background Quotes : pic 000696395

Background Quotes : pic 000524137
So you want to know all about me, Who
I am
What chance meeting of brush and canvas painted
the face
you see? what made me despise the girl
in the mirror
enough to transform her, turn her into a stranger,
only not.
Background Quotes : pic 001669534
Either this wallpaper goes, or I do.
Background Quotes : pic 001660480
Every photographed object is merely the trace left behind by the disappearance of all the rest. It is an almost perfect crime, an almost total resolution of the world, which merely leave the illusion of a particular object shining forth, the image of which then becomes an impenetrable enigma.
Background Quotes : pic 001011086
I make a composition with a white and a black, and make adjustments when the white has become a paper and the black a shadow.
Background Quotes : pic 000976042
While I have devised various formal strategies for articulating [my] concerns, I think fundamentally the work is driven by a basic curiosity. I seek to find out things about people by making photographs of them.
Background Quotes : pic 000759604
The floating world is the realm of the graphic designer
Background Quotes : pic 001539976

I have never seen
Are in the background of your photos
Yet, I don't feel
How faraway you are
Background Quotes : pic 000517522

Background Quotes : pic 001143102
Photography has no dark sides!
Background Quotes : pic 000204696
Just as the development of earth art and installation art stemmed from the idea of taking art out of the galleries, the basis of my involvement with public art is a continuation of wall drawings.
Background Quotes : pic 001007627
Sometimes magnificent visual art takes root in the humblest of soils. Advertisements painted on old barns, tattoos, fruit crate labels, hot rod embellishments - all these media and many other non-galleried forms have hosted and fostered esthetic delights that satisfy any rigorous definition of art.
Background Quotes : pic 000332709
Portrait The world spreads out on either side no farther than the heart is wide.
Background Quotes : pic 001630295
The richness of our contemporary visual world must be seen as a danger. It is an overwhelming and oppressive world. A world that manifests itself fundamentally through the image is only a few steps from totalitarian manipulation.
Background Quotes : pic 001150159
I put on the canvas whatever comes into my mind.
Background Quotes : pic 001546551
When you can't think of anything else, photograph graffiti, nudes, or plants.
Background Quotes : pic 001646280
Pay attention to your visual themes.
Background Quotes : pic 000143029
In most natural scenes there is a prevailing colour, which the landscape painter must learn to identify, and which must prevail also in a slightly exaggerated form, in his painting, for the sake of truth, harmony and unity.
Background Quotes : pic 001549279
The girl with the pictures on her skin
Background Quotes : pic 000505142
Each thing you add to your story is a drop of paint falling into clear water; it spreads through and colors everything.
Background Quotes : pic 000625474
The way that the background fields generates mass is rather like the way in which when light passes through a transparent medium like glass or water, it gets slowed down. It no longer travels with the fundamental velocity of light c. And that's the way to think of the generation of mass.
Background Quotes : pic 000945344
In this fleeting life, there is nothing stronger than a visual idea or moment stopped in time forever. And nothing does this better than a black-and-white photograph.
Background Quotes : pic 000188033
I have designed my style pantomimes as white ink drawings on black backgrounds, so that man's destiny appears as a thread lost in an endless labyrinth. I have tried to shed some gleams of light on the shadow of man startled by his anguish.
Background Quotes : pic 001024624
In the reflection I see my shoulder-length curly brown hair. My lime-green pajamas. My striped slippers.
Background Quotes : pic 000386998

Background Quotes : pic 000228809
I enjoy trying to figure out the best way to compliment the picture and not overpower it.
Background Quotes : pic 000811640
The 'public' artist confirms the world that we already accept, though he inevitably widens our experience of it; his method is one of research, the progressive uncovering of detail.
Background Quotes : pic 001342501
I almost never start with an image. I start with a painting idea, an impulse, usually derived from my own world.
Background Quotes : pic 000190462
Photography makes one conscious of beauty everywhere, even in the simplest things, even in what is often considered commonplace or ugly. Yet nothing is really 'ordinary', for every fragment of the world is crowned with wonder and mystery, and a great and surprising beauty.
Background Quotes : pic 000670531
If you are representing a white body let it be surrounded by ample space, because as white has no colour of its own, it is tinged and altered in some degree by the colour of the objects surrounding it
Background Quotes : pic 000539450
A world of colors on the palette remaining ... wandering ... on canvases still emerging.
Background Quotes : pic 001135835
What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound than a portrait.
Background Quotes : pic 001216736
It's Frank's painting on the cover. We were originally going to use a Salvador Dali painting that we got permission from Salvador Dali to use, and Frank found this one, and it really did fit the music much more.
Background Quotes : pic 000922834
I've worked out of a series of no's. No to exquisite light, no to apparent compositions, no to the seduction of poses or narrative. And all these no's force me to the yes. I have a white background. I have the person I'm interested in and the thing that happens between us.
Background Quotes : pic 000395546
We often walk without knowing the beautiful and the mysterious art created behind us by our shadows.
Background Quotes : pic 001766410

Background Quotes : pic 000827929
