The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism


 

 

Alice Neel - click name for biography

 


 

·         Whether I'm painting or not, I have this overweening interest in humanity. Even if I'm not working, I'm still analyzing people.

- Alice Neel

 

·         I thought you had to give up a lot for art, and you did. It required complete concentration. It also required that whatever money you had had to be put into art materials.

- Alice Neel

 

·         You can't leave humanity out. If you didn't have humanity, you wouldn't have anything.

- Alice Neel

 

·         You should keep on painting no matter how difficult it is, because this is all part of experience, and the more experience you have, the better it is.. unless it kills you, and then you know you have gone too far.

- Alice Neel

 

·         The essence of sculpture is for me the perception of space, the continuum of our existence.

- Alice Neel

 

·         I had a revelation in 1933 of the earth outdoors as a new way of conceiving sculpture.

- Alice Neel

 

·         The attractions of ceramics lie partly in its contradictions. It is both difficult and easy, with an element beyond our control. It is both extremely fragile and durable. Like 'Sumi' ink painting, it does not lend itself to erasures and indecision. The best is that which is most spontaneous or seemingly so. I have found it a natural medium to work with in Japan, but not so in America. I associate it with the closeness of earth and wood which is for me Japan and not America today.

- Alice Neel

 

·         The art of stone in a Japanese garden is that of placement. Its ideal does not deviate from that of nature. But I am also a sculptor of the West. I place my mark and do not hide.

- Alice Neel
