“Your Own Astonishment”: Quotations for Artists in Any Field

"There is something you find interesting, for a reason hard to explain. It is hard to explain because you have never read it on any page; there you begin. You were made and set here to give voice to this, your own astonishment." Annie Dillard

Art does not reproduce the visible; rather it makes it visible.” Paul Klee

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, I will tell you: ‘I am here to live out loud.’” Emile Zola

“Art is a human activity, consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of external signs, hands on to others feelings he has worked through, and other people are infected by these feelings and also experience them.” Leo Tolstoy

Coming soon: more great interviews with artists and experts!

I really love the quotes. Is this going to be a regular feature? I'd love to see more of your collection of quotes.
