Tuesday in the #ArtStudio – Where do we go from here?

“The importance of an artist is to be determined by the number of new signs he introduces into the language of art.” —Henri Matisse, quoted in Matisse by Louis Aragon Art is a language of signs and symbols. To describe new conditions, new signs must be created or old symbols must be redeployed in ways that give them new meanings. Given that the world is constantly changing and that each new generation describes the world it sees in its own way, the symbol language of art must always be evolving. Language is influence. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
