    Biography: Here are a few of my favorite quotes and excerpts I've taken to heart... perhaps some of these will ring true for you as well :)

    From the book 'Art & Fear' . . .
    "Some art, by its very nature, is subversive. By leading the viewer to experience the world through the very different sensibilities of the artist, a good work of art inevitably calls the viewer's own belief system into question. Is this threatening? Is the Pope Catholic? The more effective the art, the more likely the viewer's first reaction will be anger and denial -- followed immediately by a search for someone to blame."

    "It's a dreary tradition: artists from Atget to Weegee were ignored through most of their careers because the work they produced didn't fit within the established definition of art. For the artist, the dilemma seems obvious: risk rejection by exploring new worlds, or court acceptance by following well-explored paths. Needless to say, the latter strategy is the overwhelming drug of choice where acceptance is the primary goal. Make work that 'looks like' art, and acceptance is automatic."

    "We do not long remember those artists who followed the rules more diligently than anyone else. We remember those who made the art from which the 'rules' inevitably follow."

    "One is encouraged to repeat, discouraged to explore and radically shift the nature of his terrain and viewpoint." -- Mark Di Suvero

    "That which is not daring is nothing." -- Kenneth Patchen

    "Give me a fruitful error anytime, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections." -- Vilfredo Pareto

    "Free your mind." -- Morpheus

    "If I still scream, it is to prevent the others from changing me." -- Elie Wiesel

    "Only a personality which is hard and aggressive, despite its apparent gentleness, can survive wearying periods of rejection and censure that whittle down any ego almost to its complete loss." -- Lawrence Hatterer

    "An artist should not be troubled by the indifference of his contemporaries. He should go on working and say all he has been predestined to say."
    -- Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky

    "It's very possible that your life in art -- your 'successful' life in art -- might be a struggle from start to finish." -- Sally Warner

    "Sure I have self-doubts. I just spent three days trying to paint a two-inch rock and thought maybe I'd be better off wrapping produce in a supermarket."
    -- Maria Mijares

    "I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues." -- Duke Ellington

    Signature: "One is encouraged to repeat, discouraged to explore and radically shift the nature of his terrain and viewpoint." -- Mark Di Suvero
