An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her
rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the mastery which will later
enable him to express himself in his own language.

::: Henri Matisse

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature
which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves,
for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.

::: Vincent van Gogh

~ You like it, that's all, whether it's a landscape or abstract. You like it. It hits you. You don't have to read it.

~ You do most of your talking about the works and try to say why you think Every artist is a law to himself. There's no method.

~ I don't get into "becauses." When you come into a studio you see a number of works. My habit is to go to the one I like most. If you start to say "because" you get into art jargon.


::: Clement Greenberg

[FIELDSET= ~ The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky]
I knew the effect it would have on you and on you only, for the prince will certainly forgive it, and has probably forgiven it already… he has found an excuse for him in his own mind by now most likely; that’s true, prince, isn’t it?

[FIELDSET= ~ The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky]
To-morrow morning at seven o’clock I will be on the green seat in the park waiting for you. I have made up my mind to talk to you about an exceedingly important matter which concerns you directly.

P.S. I hope you will show no one this letter. Though I’m ashamed to give you such a caution, I think that you deserve it and I write it, blushing with shame at your absurd character.

P.SS. I mean the green seat I pointed out to you this morning. You ought to be ashamed that I should have to write this, too.

[/FIELDSET]

وإذا كانَ فنّ الرسم يدورُ حولَ الحُضور والغياب، فإنّ فنّ بيكاسو، في أعمق حالاته، يتموضع على العتبة التي تفصل بين هذا وذاك، على باب ما هو آخِذٌ بالتبلور، باب ما قد بدأ للتَوّ، وما لم يكتمل بعد

نساءٌ آتياتٌ من أربعِ جهاتِ الكون يتثاءبْنَ ضجراً في صالات الرقص المهجورة. وَكُنَّ قد نِمْنَ القيلولة جالسات، دونَ أن يوقظهُنَّ أحدٌ ليُحبّهُنّ

غبريال ماركيز، القصص القصيرة الكاملة، دار المدى ~

I felt that I was in duty bound not to content myself with these unilluminating words, but to endeavour to see more into the sources of my rapture.

Toujours avec l'espoir de rencontrer la mer,
Ils voyageaient sans pain, sans bâtons et sans urnes,
Mordant au citron d'or de l'idéal amer.
