Being an artist Quotes
Here are what the artists of today say about their life and art
Quoted here the artists about art. Did you know that the term Aesthetic was hacked by the German philosopher Alexander Baumgarten in 1735 to define Art as an autonomous entity out of morality, politics and religion? Aesthetic philosophy is still today taught in Fine art schools and it helps the artists to avoid the reality of the art world they will be thrown in afterwards.

“I was really interested in artists’ belief in themselves. I think that when Duchamp gave artists the godlike right to designate something as art, he puts artists in a very difficult position. How do you command that authority? To do that is really a real shift and I don’t think it’s any accident that Duchamp started experimenting with his persona. He started crafting identities at the same time as crafting ideas.”
“Ironically, with conceptual art, being an artist becomes the craft.”
-Sarah Thornton “33 Artists in 3 Acts” Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago 2014
“I have to make objects in such an O.C.D. way. When everything is lined up, it starts to have its own logic and I have no control over it. That’s another way for me to be dominated by objects.
I like that, when objects start to have its own life – like you cannot control and all of a sudden I realize that is very much what I’m experiencing in my life.”

“Integrity means living your life in accordance with the things that you say. So when you say things publicly, you should live according to those things that you say. So I think that’s something that helps me that I try to be very vocal about what I think is the right way to live, the right way to make art. And I hope I think it helps keep me honest and helps keep me on track. Maybe means saying a few to everyone else for a little while and just creating that thing that you’re most passionate about. Whatever it is, fighting compromise and distraction is part of the battle of art and overcoming it is part of the satisfaction that comes from making art.”

“That’s part of the artist mindset, that you’re always looking for things that don’t exist. It’s maddening. But when you get to a place you didn’t even expect to exist, it’s the most satisfying, fulfilling feeling that I’ve had next to having a child.”

The Kaplan Twins
“The Kaplan Twins are two really sexy girls that I found online I got this space and asked them if they wanted to move-in, they said yes. This is effectively an art incubator. Almost immediately we started to think of ideas of how we can monetize their brands in the environment which is direct-to-consumer part sales on Instagram. They made this interesting observation which was that they got a lot more likes on photos of themselves than they did on their artwork. So we got to think about how we can integrate an art object into their lives and tell the stories of their involvement with the art object. Then sell it directly to consumers.”
-Matty Mo ( aka the most famous artist ) about The Kaplan Twins
Artists about art
“It was about the work and the whole concept of the show was home and family. But to me, home is somewhere that I feel comfortable, to just kick back and like relax and read and I don’t feel rushed. I feel like a lot of time in galleries when I go there I feel like I go in I see the work and I come out and I don’t relate to this space or I don’t relate to anything within the space.”
Project “I’m Home” (2018)
“Amazing art styles can be found in every corner of the earth but unfortunately, the earth is round. This is especially true for tribal artists where the art patterns are not even recognized as art as it could be as simple as lines or dots. Its about time tribal art is given the same value or status as much as other art forms”
“The scariest thing is to know that you finally have gotten to this level, that I’ve always strived to attain since I was fourteen years old… Um… and there’s a possibility that you know, it doesn’t all work out. You know, that it isn’t all perfect once you get to this… the most… the uppermost echelon.
And this one took four months. And I worked on it… I didn’t take a break. I worked on it straight through for four months. Every day, seven days a week.
I’m not an easy person to live with. Because, you know, I’m married to my work, in a way. But your partner, your wife or spouse, is completely understanding that you need to do that or to be the person you want to be. And that’s an incredible gift.”
