Creative Quotations from . . .
Henry Moore
(1898-1986) born on
Jul 30
English sculptor. He was an abstract sculptor known as "The Father of the Hole".
         
   
F
The observation of nature is part of an artist's life, it enlarges his form [and] knowledge, keeps him fresh and from working only by formula, and feeds inspiration.

R
I find in all the artists that I admire most a disturbing element, a distortion, giving evidence of a struggle . . . . In great art, this conflict is hidden, it is unresolved. All that is bursting with energy is disturbing - not perfect.
A
The creative habit is like a drug. The particular obsession changes, but the excitement, the thrill of your creation lasts.
N
There is a right physical size for every idea.
K
It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work.
