#LastWeekOfTheQuarter #WorkTime in the #Art #Studio

Get out your handbooks!

Static images deliver the information they contain instantly. But they also have the capacity to reveal the whole process of their making, as well as the depth of their narrative, over an extended period of investigation, meditation, and analysis. Paintings are especially unique in this quality. Good art never stops revealing itself. And though the eye can take in an image in its totality in an instant, great images reveal their secrets slowly. The more complex an image, the slower the revelation. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
