E. Gorey’s Great Simple Theory About Art

"This is the theory .  .  . that anything that is art .  .  . is presumably about some certain thing, but is really always about something else, and it’s no good having one without the other, because if you just have the something it is boring and if you just have the something else it’s irritating.”

 

from: Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer

 

 

"Just on the other side of frustration is the best satisfaction. And, art is about being human, not about perfection. Perfectionism is a terrible disease that robs us of joy and freedom. Creating allows us to be vulnerable and imperfect."
