Monday Motivator: Brushmarks Touching Reality

 

Art motivational quote“No matter what I look at, it all surprises and eludes me, and I am not too sure of what I see. It is too complex. …It’s as if reality were continually behind curtains that one tears away … but there is always another … always one more.”
— Alberto Giacometti, quoted in Pure Presence, page 15

“…the emphatic quality of the artist’s brushwork … allows the spectator to recreate how the artist, in touching the depicted object in the act of painting it, imaginatively touches the real object itself, or brings it within reach.”
