About people who had a great influence on me:

Photo by Jean Mohr

"I can't tell you what art does and how it does it, but I know that art has often judged the judges, pleaded revenge to the innocent and shown to the future what the past has suffered so that it has never been forgotten".

"I know too that the powerful fear art, whatever its form, when it does this, and that amongst the people such art sometimes runs like a rumour and a legend because it makes sense of what life's brutalities cannot, a sense that unites us, for it is inseparable from a justice at last. Art, when it functions like this, becomes a meeting-place of the invisible, the irreducible, the enduring, guts and honour".

OZENFANT 'Foundations of Modern Art'
At the moment I am reading, or should I say: "I am trying ro read"?: OZENFANT Foundations of Modern Art. The english of a french intellectual from the 1920's is not easy to read, but the contents are all the better. It really is a 'must read' on art and education and is used as such on many art-schools and academies around the world. Amedee Ozenfant's life is also quite interesting, not just as a critic and historian but he was a renowned artist himself at that time of cubists and new directions in architecture.
