The work of the eyes is done.
Go now and do the heart-work
on the images imprisoned within you.

-  Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Everything is sculpture. 
Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space,
I consider sculpture.

 

                                                                           - Isamu Noguchi

The universe is

a communion of subjects,

not a collection of objects.


-  Thomas Berry

Beauty astounds                                                      
and pulls the heart’s focus
toward the object, out of ourselves,    

out of this  human-centered insanity 
toward wanting to keep the cosmos there
for another spring and another morning.

This is the ecological emotion,
and it is aesthetic and political at once.

-  James Hillman

Artists are culture-makers,
and culture is the crucible
for changing perceptions and feelings,
for communicating hopes and fears,
and creating choices in places of desperation.

- Arlene Goldbard

My work is a testimony
for the power of an individual

to create a call  to action.                                           

- Lily Yeh

We need to keep on building  that new world,  

keeping ourselves attentive to all our privileges, 

to all the exclusions,  and to all our gorgeous gifts,  beauty we do not even know yet.

                                                             -  Petra Kuppers

Alice laughed. 

There's no use trying,' she said;
'one can't believe impossible things.'  

'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' 

said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day.  

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'

-  Lewis Carroll,
Through the Looking Glass

What I find wonderful about working with artists is that they are just as fascinated by

side routes and diversions as they are

by the direction in which they are going.

This is what makes artistic work really different from scientific work.
 

- Dr Michael Doser, experimental physicist

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.

- Ziggy Marley
