ART QUOTES: On Spirituality 2

A sequel to a previous post ART QUOTES: On Spirituality

“Yet because art allows humanity to relay complex concepts that are hard to put into words, spirituality and art are naturally linked. Their affinity remains powerful, despite over one hundred years of

“Art seems to me to be above all a state of soul. All souls are sacred, the soul of all the bipeds in every quarter of the globe.”

-Marc Chagall

“My work embodies little visions of the great intangible… …Some will say he’s gone mad – others will look and say he’s looked in at the lattices of Heaven and come back with the madness of splendor on him.”
