Continuing The Conversation

"Whatever an artist's personal feelings are, as soon as he fills a certain area of canvas or circumscribes it, he becomes historical. He acts from and upon other artists."
--- Willem de Kooning

"The tradition of art is the grand group dance of beauty and pathos in which the many individual centuries join in the effort and thereby communicate their particular contributions to the whole event... The soloist can emerge only after having participated in the group dance."
--- Arshile Gorky
