Louise Bourgeous from The Spider the Mistress and the Tangerine:
"It has nothing to do with the craft. It has nothing to do with the skill. It has nothing to do with the how-to-manage materials. Materials are only materials, nothing more. The materials are not the subject of the artist. The subject of the artist is emotions...and ideas, both."
Paul Klee (Pictured above in his studio)
Paul Klee, from the film The Silence of the Angel:
"To succeed in what you undertake it is essential never to work with a preconceived final image in mind. On the contrary, one must devote oneself entirely to the task in hand. Will and discipline are everything."
