Anne Desmet Quotes

Quotes by Anne Desmet - (5 quotes)

Anne Desmet - From the Collage category:

Engraving takes such a bloody long time. Sometimes you feel you've almost ground to a halt... That's why I need to be working on collages at the same time. I work on those much faster. (Anne Desmet)

Anne Desmet - From the Collectors category:

The longer you spend working on something – loving it into being, almost – the more you get attached. It's silly, but you do hope they go to good homes. (Anne Desmet)

Anne Desmet - From the Profession category:

The way art is reported makes it very difficult for people outside the arts to consider visual art a sensible profession. (Anne Desmet)

Anne Desmet - From the Shock category:

Newspapers like work that literally or metaphorically takes the piss, and what could a paper say about my work that is adequately shocking? (Anne Desmet)

Anne Desmet - From the Words category:

Printmaking is very much associated with reproduction, and that's partly a problem of the English language that we use the same word 'print' to describe some watercolour reproduced in 5,000 copies, or an engraving that exists only in that form. (Anne Desmet)
