#1. If you're an artist trying to put out your own record on your own label, it's hard to get a distribution deal because no one wants to sign a deal with one entity. They want to sign distribution deals with labels, who have lots of product, lots of artists. - Author: Aimee Mann
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Aimee Mann
#2. Our culture teaches us from early infancy to split and polarize dark and light, which I call here "mother" and "father." So some people admire the right-thinking, well-lit side of the personality, and that group one can associate with the father, if one wants to; and some admire the left-thinking, poorly-lit side, and that group one can associate with the mother, if one wants to, and mythologically with the Great Mother. Most artists, poets, and musicians belong to the second group and love intuition, music, the feminine, owls, and the ocean. The right-thinking group loves action, commerce, and Empire. - Author: Robert Bly
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Robert Bly
#3. I'm a great believer in the hereafter, in karma, in reincarnation. It does make sense. I believe that God is not just a law-giver, but a creative artist. The greatest of all. And what characterises artists is that they want to redo their work. Maybe it didn't come off perfectly, so they want to see it done again, and improved. Reincarnation is a way for God to improve his earlier works. - Author: Norman Mailer
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Norman Mailer
#4. Artists are like cockroaches; everything is grist for the mill. - Author: Elaine De Kooning
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Elaine De Kooning
#5. I think that frequently, many times in the beginning of our path as artists, we do have to deal with our upsets and our negativeness - in regard to, mostly, ourselves. We may be taking it out on our loved ones or people close to us, but really we're just mad at ourselves for not giving ourselves the time to devote to our inner development and doing the soul work through our art work. So there's a certain amount of working through that. You may have to cry, you may have to dance, you may have to get the energy moving in whatever way you can, and if you need to scream as you work that's as much of a prayer as the more refined kinds of artist's prayers. Sometimes it's a more direct kind of thing. You can scream in rage, you can scream your need for God, whatever's there for you. You've got to start where you're at. If you think that you can just start making spiritual art without addressing all the build-up of shadow material that you may be carrying around with you, and it's leaking out at the borders, then I don't think that's any good. You've got to be true. So wherever you're at, that's where you start.
And as far as the artist creating spiritual or visionary art, I think that it's obvious and important that the artist experience the transpersonal states prior to them trying to bring it out in their work, otherwise they're just doing imitative or derivative kind of work. It has to be from some authentic inner experience, and as long as you've had some experience of you - Author: Alex Grey

#6. I love music, and can dance on the desi beats. Punjabi music is my favourite. I listen to artists like Honey Singh. I love his music. I also love watching Bollywood films. - Author: Vijender Singh
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Vijender Singh
#7. If we artists are to survive this period at all - we will survive as spokesmen, never again as entertainers. - Author: Rico Lebrun
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Rico Lebrun
#8. I want to suggest to you that the day of the artists has come. That there are things about symbols and the genuine indirectness of art with integrity that can speak into a lost and stuck imagination. We are awakening the imagination of people who have become cynical about the old 'grand stories' that have done so much harm. We are sowing the possibility that the might be one which could actually set them free. - Author: Graham Cray
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Graham Cray
#9. I want to change the pop world one sequin at a time. Artists tend to take themselves way too seriously and don't enjoy the fun of making an impact on culture. I just have a good time and sequins represent a good time. - Author: Lady Gaga
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Lady Gaga
#10. Warhol came from an ordinary family and he had a profound understanding about capitalism and material culture. He was probably one of the few Western artists - or artists from the United States - that could be considered a true product of his time and brought out that kind of spirit of the culture. - Author: Ai Weiwei
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Ai Weiwei
#11. Oh, don't get me started! I love fantasy, I read it for pleasure, even after all these years. Pat McKillip, Ursula Le Guin and John Crowley are probably my favorite writers in the field, in addition to all the writers in the Endicott Studio group - but there are many others I also admire. In children's fantasy, I'm particularly keen on Philip Pullman, Donna Jo Napoli, David Almond and Jane Yolen - though my favorite novels recently were Midori Snyder's Hannah's Garden, Holly Black's Tithe, and Neil Gaiman's Coraline.

I read a lot of mainstream fiction as well - I particularly love Alice Hoffman, A.S. Byatt, Sara Maitland, Sarah Waters, Sebastian Faulks, and Elizabeth Knox. There's also a great deal of magical fiction by Native American authors being published these days - Louise Erdrich's Antelope Wife, Alfredo Vea Jr.'s Maravilla, Linda Hogan's Power, and Susan Power's Grass Dancer are a few recent favorites.

I'm a big fan of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, and Anthony Trollope - I re-read Jane Austen's novels in particular every year.Other fantasists say they read Tolkien every year, but for me it's Austen. I adore biographies, particularly biographies of artists and writers (and particularly those written by Michael Holroyd). And I love books that explore the philosophical side of art, such as Lewis Hyde's The Gift, Carolyn Heilbrun's Writing a Woman's Life, or David Abram's Spell of the Sensuous.

Aestheticism Artists quotes by Terri Windling
#12. What sets 'Some Nights' apart from anything we've ever done is the hip-hop influence. Not so much the actual sound of hip-hop, but more the vibrato and the artistry that comes with it. Right now, the artists that seem to be pushing to be the greatest artists and are trying to change the world are hip-hop artists. - Author: Jack Antonoff
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Jack Antonoff
#13. The arts have only ever interested a small minority of people, which acted as a kind of nursery to support artists. - Author: Vivienne Westwood
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Vivienne Westwood
#14. There was a great sense of community mainly among the women artists at the time because we felt left out. I still know most of the women that I knew then, the ones that are still alive. - Author: Michelle Stuart
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Michelle Stuart
#15. I'm the lady by day, and I'm Gaga by night. And I'm always going to be that way, because it's a testament to your discipline as a musician. I do like to drink, I like to get crazy, I like to go out with my friends, and I like to sing rock and roll. I used to go-go dance! And I like to be inspired by young artists, people like Millie who are outrageously hard, disciplined individuals. But at the end of the day I'm a classically trained pianist and I'm a singer, and that's what allows the girl that goes out at night to also go on stage with Tony Bennett at Lincoln Center. Because I know how to do it. - Author: Lady Gaga
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Lady Gaga
#16. An artist's voice, communication, that's very important. The learning, the building of your energy to communicate deeper and deeper even without words, the expanse of your source-spark energy to reach people at deeper energy levels is very beautiful to learn about since it's our mission here as artists to help beings transcend limitations and any feeling, thing keeping their love down to show them that we are all artists with very special sides of energy light from the creator. - Author: Giuseppe Andrews
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Giuseppe Andrews
#17. Most artists are doing basically the same thing - staying off the streets. - Author: Edward Ruscha
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Edward Ruscha
#18. Truth? Sometimes I question every last thing I'm doing.
Truth? Right now, those questions swirl every damn day.
Is this also true for you?
Still, we keep moving forward, you and I. We try new things. We doggedly keep on doing the old things because though they may not have worked in the past it doesn't feel like crazy to continue, it feels like the space of trusting some wild sort of knowing. We love, good and hard. We show up for life. In the midst of depression, insanely messy houses, and bank accounts sliding closer and closer to that fine red line, and panic attacks, and kids who won't listen but who damn well know how to question and love.
And we make stuff. My god, the way we keep on making stuff. Because we can and we have to. Because it's the only damn thing that feels right when everything else feels a hundred kinds of wrong. We create. Defiant and determined and true. Weary hearts brought to blazing life if only for those wild moments we dance with the muse. - Author: Jeanette LeBlanc
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#19. I'm interested in how artists and writers do this, using art as therapy. Escaping into the worlds we create. We're all victims and few of us are truly free. - Author: David Lloyd
Aestheticism Artists quotes by David Lloyd
#20. Artists die twice. First creatively. Then physically. The second one is the easiest. - Author: Sylvester Stallone
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Sylvester Stallone
#21. This is the world of pretend. We are artists and we are servants of the stage, and I take both jobs very seriously. As artists, we work as a collective - all for one and one for all. As servants, we work for thos who venture out alone, otherwise known as performers. - Author: Rebecca Stead
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Rebecca Stead
#22. I think women have always been trying to look healthy. The makeup artists just teach you the quick cheats. - Author: Natalie Dormer
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Natalie Dormer
#23. I endeavored to renounce society, that I might avoid temptation. But it was a poor religion; so far as it prevailed, only tended to make me gloomy, stupid, unsociable, and useless. - Author: John Newton
Aestheticism Artists quotes by John Newton
#24. There is something abominable about cameras, because they possess the power to invent many worlds. As an artist who has been lost in this wilderness of mechanical reproduction for many years, I do not know which world to start with. I have seen fellow artists driven to the point of frenzy by photography. - Author: Robert Smithson
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Robert Smithson
#25. I've really enjoyed B.R.P.D. since its first days when Guy Davis was an artist on the title, and if anyone is looking for an end of the world Cthulhu apocalypse title, Mignola and Arcudi and the artists who work the title do a fantastic job. - Author: Ben Peek
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Ben Peek
#26. I like to be in the zone. I like being in the studio with the artists, with the producers, with the musicians, feeling it, and going there. I feel like I have a lot of content to start writing about. - Author: LeCrae
Aestheticism Artists quotes by LeCrae
#27. I know artists whose medium is life itself, and who express the inexpressible without brush, pencil, chisel or guitar. They neither paint nor dance. Their medium is Being. Whatever their hand touches has increased life ... They are the artists of being alive. - Author: Frederick Franck
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Frederick Franck
#28. I know I can only do as much as I can do. Although I have so many ideas of my own, I'm very interested in helping to cultivate and encourage some promising new artists. But there are a lot of people and, unfortunately, a very small window. - Author: Tyler Perry
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Tyler Perry
#29. The artist does not exist except as a personification, a figure of speech that represents the sum total of art itself. It is painting that is the genius of the painter, poetry of the poet, and a person is a creative artist to the extent that he participates in that genius. - Author: Harold Rosenberg
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Harold Rosenberg
#30. A lot of artists don't like the sound of their voice. They're put off by it. - Author: Narada Michael Walden
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Narada Michael Walden
#31. Political leaders and presidents were shot at or assassinated about as often as rap artists are today. An unpopular war cost fifty-eight thousand American lives. Those who bravely served our country returned home to be treated with unwarranted scorn. Promiscuous sex and hallucinatory drugs were celebrated as the path to enlightenment. Race riots set major cities aflame. Police were called pigs. And no one over the age of thirty was to be trusted. Worse, some people wore leisure suits - in public - and they were proud of it. - Author: Larry Osborne
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Larry Osborne
#32. Love is the spirit that motivates the artist's journey. The love may sublime, raw, obsessive, passionate, awful. or thrilling, but whatever its quality, it's a powerful motive in the artist's life. - Author: Eric Maisel
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Eric Maisel
#33. I very often think about doing things that I would want other artists to do. Like, if I'm a fan of whoever, I want to be treated a certain way. So I realized it came off almost elitist to ignore the whole world of Twitter and Facebook. - Author: Patrick Stump
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Patrick Stump
#34. Artists - musicians, painters, writers, poets - always seem to have had the most accurate perception of what is really going on around them, not the official version or the popular perception of contemporary life. - Author: Billy Joel
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Billy Joel
#35. At home, at school, among acquaintances, she had been used to have her conscious superiority admitted; and she had moved in a society where everything, from low arithmetic to high art, is of the amateur kind politely supposed to fall short of perfection only because gentlemen and ladies are not obliged to do more than they like - otherwise they would probably give forth abler writings and show themselves more commanding artists than any the world is at present obliged to put up with. - Author: George Eliot
Aestheticism Artists quotes by George Eliot
#36. Artists take on an alias that's suitable for their style of music. Everyone had a nickname when they were younger. - Author: Tinie Tempah
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Tinie Tempah
#37. All that matters is that artists keep reminding mortals about what really matters: the wonder, the glory, the madness, the importance and the improbability of love. - Author: Hannah Mary Rothschild
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Hannah Mary Rothschild
#38. All artists are mothers. To be an artist is to be a creator, whether of a symphony or a supper or a painting or a person. Motherhood is the primary art, the art of creating (procreating) people. - Author: Peter Kreeft
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Peter Kreeft
#39. To a modern student, pre-industrial politics appear to be virtually soaked in religion, both in the sense that rulers devoted much attention to religious questions [...] and in the sense that everyone talked endlessly about it, justifying and vilifying a vast range of action in religious terms. [...]

... the pre-modern world was poor in organization. Modern people are members of an immense variety of associations, both local and nationwide, or indeed international, being organized as voters, artists, scholars, scientists, antivivisectionists, devotees of this sport or that, consumers and so forth in addition to (if they so wish) as believers. But pre-industrial society was less differentiated, less wealthy and far less well equipped with means of communication. Hence there might be little or no organization above the level of household or village apart from that provided by religion. This automatically endowed religion with political importance, [...] but it also meant that religion united under its umbrella numerous activities that would nowadays be pursued under umbrellas of their own. [...] Pre-modern religion could be about anything and everything. - Author: Patricia Crone
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Patricia Crone
#40. Most artists look for something fresh to paint; frankly I find that quite boring. For me it is much more exciting to find fresh meaning in something familiar. - Author: Andrew Wyeth
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Andrew Wyeth
#41. An artist's concern is to capture beauty wherever he finds it. - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#42. It has since struck me as one of the most touching aspects of the part played in life by these idle, painstaking women that they devote all their generosity, all their talent, their transferable dreams of sentimental beauty (for, like all artists, they never seek to realise the value of those dreams, or to enclose them in the four-square frame of everyday life), and their gold, which counts for little, to the fashioning of a fine and precious setting for the rubbed and scratched and ill-polished lives of men. - Author: Marcel Proust
Aestheticism Artists quotes by Marcel Proust
