Nader Khaghani Quotes

Quotes by Nader Khaghani - (7 quotes)

Nader Khaghani - From the Brother/Sisterhood category:

Creativity is a life journey that we do with all fellow creators. Dead or alive is besides the point, since arts are eternal. The creative process is the same regardless of classification... and by skinny dipping the soul in the same creative waters we join the 'hood. (Nader Khaghani)

Nader Khaghani - From the Communication category:

Talking about the work neutralizes the energy, cheapens and chips away from the experience... The thing that really needs to be shared is the finished work. (Nader Khaghani)

Nader Khaghani - From the Ideas category:

Do we need to feel guilty that we are more idea-oriented? And trying to paint an image with an idea strongly presented?... yes, I know Picasso's statement that you can't stick ideas on the canvas. He certainly did exactly that. (Nader Khaghani)

Nader Khaghani - From the Materials category:

Old brushes are broken into work and have developed a mind of their own and respond to our mind beautifully. They must not be discarded. (Nader Khaghani)

Nader Khaghani - From the Profession category:

Six months painting hard will cure anyone's fantasies. The road is hard, unpaved and full of poodles large enough to take a whole person in head first, the family too, even the family dog can end up starving! (Nader Khaghani)

Nader Khaghani - From the Shock category:

We need to use the good old pigments, not body parts, to say something. Generally, if we have something to say we find a way. Franz Marc is more expressive in color than for the shock value of cut-out cow organs. (Nader Khaghani)

Nader Khaghani - From the Subject category:

Painting needs to tackle the big questions, beyond the floral, landscape, figure, etc. If film and video take up the big questions and we keep up with the old traditional subject matter, we painters are losing ground and getting pushed to the sidelines. (Nader Khaghani)
