Deep Thoughts by oxboxer Deep Thoughts by oxboxer
“The man who has honesty, integrity, the love of inquiry, the desire to see beyond, is ready to appreciate good art. He needs no one to give him an ‘Art Education’; he is already qualified. He needs but to see pictures with his active mind, look into them for the things that belong to him, and he will find soon enough in himself an art connoisseur and an art lover of the first order.”
- Robert Henri

I never can imagine when looking at empty piece of canvas.. It rather scares me, to have this enormous emptiness in front of me.. I know I need to fill it in and all of the sudden I feel like my brain shuts down, I'm paralyzed, I never enjoyed it.. but that's just a side note, I believe those are metaphoric gallery pieces and this is not an artist, rather observer :) Nice work!

This is exactly how I think when I think of how my Gallery is going to be filled. I can't wait to start getting ahold of some of my favorite artists and offering space in it. Huge potential but nothing but blank while space for the time being. :)

My mind is that he's saying "these canvases would be so much more badass if we added fish to them. And Jemma. Always Jemma."
