Brigitte Nowak Quotes

Quotes by Brigitte Nowak - (10 quotes)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Blocks category:

When I am between ideas I clean my studio: I am still in the space, fulfilling my time, and surrounded by my tools and, since making art is more pleasant than cleaning up, it usually isn't long before an idea will appear that demands to be executed. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Collectors category:

Let's be grateful that people, with the resources to do so, spend some of their cash on the un-necessities of life - like art... they could have put their money into mutual funds, cars, their pets or other toys, but they chose art. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Complaining category:

Whining uses time and energy that could be spent painting. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Integrity category:

There's a fine line between knowing 'what the public wants' and being true to one's own vision, and knowing where and when to compromise - or not. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Meaning category:

Symbolism, subliminal messaging, even Freudian slips, enhance the way a work can resonate. The most interesting ambiguities may well extend beyond the artist's conscious intentions, to the subconscious meanings that surface in unexpected ways. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Mediums category:

Egg tempera combines the advantages of both oil and acrylic: it dries quickly, can be reworked, allows for a wide range of luminous and subtle colour effects, though not impasto, doesn't yellow or darken and is fairly portable. The only one that does not apply to egg tempera would be flexibility, as it works best on a rigid substrate. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Mediums category:

Asking whether oil or acrylic is the 'better' medium is like asking whether horses or rabbits are the fastest land animal. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Questions category:

Do IQ tests measure creativity? Can they? Perhaps they measure whether the test-takers have become better at taking tests. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Selling category:

Painters should focus on creating the best work they can. That is what they can control... Once the work is out there, its value is determined by people willing to spend money that they too worked hard for. (Brigitte Nowak)

Brigitte Nowak - From the Subject category:

Feeling that, while the vista is beautiful, it is just another view of water, rocks and trees? I often try to focus on something small: a mushroom, flower or fern - the landscape is made up of these inconsequential bits of matter, and they have a beauty in their own right. They can provide the artist with a unique perspective and subject matter. (Brigitte Nowak)
