F
Television is becoming a collage --there are so many channels that you move through them making a collage yourself. In that sense, everyone sees something a bit different.

R
No theoretician, no writer on art, however interesting he or she might be, could be as interesting as Picasso. A good writer on art may give you an insight to Picasso, but, after all, Picasso was there first.
A
Art has to move you and design does not, unless it's a good design for a bus.
N
If we are to change our world view, images have to change. The artist now has a very important job to do. He's not a little peripheral figure entertaining rich people, he's really needed.
K
It is very good advice to believe only what an artist does, rather than what he says about his work.
