“An artist’s failures are as valuable as his successes…by misjudging one thing he conforms something else, even if at the time he does not know what that something else is.” – Bridget Riley
“…the seed for your next work lies embedded in the imperfections of your current piece.”
That’s a quote from this book:
Geoff Flack, one of the instructors at Gage, recommended it. If you (like pretty much any other artist) ever wondered about yourself as an artist and/or your work – be it writing, music or painting, you name it – you have to read this book. I did, it’s fantastic. In fact I just started reading it for a second time. It’s a quick read (122 pages) and every word is worth reading and thinking about.
