“When you’re an artist you’re searching for freedom. You’ll never find it cos there ain’t any freedom, but at least you’ve searched for it. In fact, art could be called The Search.”

– Alice Neel

‘At present, I am mainly observing the physical motion of mountains, water, trees and flowers. One is everywhere reminded of similar movements in the human body, of similar impulses of joy and suffering in plants.’

– Egon Schiele
