The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism



Jean DuBuffet Quotes - click name for biography

·         There is no art without intoxication. But I mean a mad intoxication! Let reason teeter! Delirium! The highest degree of delirium! Plunged in burning dementia! Art is the most enrapturing orgy within man's reach.. Art must make you laugh a little and make you a little afraid. Anything as long as it doesn't bore.
- Jean Dubuffet

·         What I expect from any work of art is that it surprises me, that it violates my customary valuations of things and offers me other, unexpected ones.
- Jean Dubuffet

·         Art doesn't go to sleep in the bed made for it. It would sooner run away than say its own name: what it likes is to be incognito. Its best moments are when it forgets what its own name is.
- Jean Dubuffet

·         Personally, I believe very much in values of savagery. I mean: instinct, passion, mood, violence, madness.
- Jean Dubuffet

·         We intend with these works executed by those unscathed by artistic culture, in which, the mimesis has little role in the way that the artist draws everything (subject, choice of material, the creative process, ways of expressing an idea, rhythms, etc) from their own depths and, unlike intellectuals, not from the convensions of classical or fashionable art.
- Jean Dubuffet

·         For me, insanity is super sanity. The normal is psychotic. Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.
- Jean Dubuffet

·         We participate in an artistic process which is completely pure, raw, entirely reinvented in all of its phases by the artist, from his impulses alone. Therefore, of an art which manifests itself through the function of invention only, and not those, constant in cultural art, of cameleon and monkey.
- Jean Dubuffet
