All art is at once surface and symbol.
Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril.
Those who read the symbol do so at their peril.
It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.
Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the work is new, complex, and vital.
When critics disagree, the artist is in accord with himself.
We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.
All the art is quite useless.
所有艺术都是表象和符号。
那些试图发掘表象下的东西的人是在冒险。
那些试图解读出符号的意义的人也是在冒险。
艺术真正反映出的不是生活,而是观众。
对一件艺术作品的不同意见说明这件作品是创新的,复杂的,重要的。
当遭到异议时,艺术家忠于自己。
我们可以原谅做了一个做了有用的事情的人,只要他不赞美它;而做了无意义的事情的人求得原谅的唯一方法就是热情地赞美它。所以说,所有艺术都是毫无用处的。
