Quote for the Day. 01-07-2012

Thanks to a colleague Matthew Allen. I was introduced to this wonderful quote by the great painter Helmut Federle.

‎"I see it more in an Asian way, that I, as an artist, don’t have to invent something, I just go down the same path as everybody else, and make distinctions in my period, my time. References are warm and beautiful energies. I am part of a history and not a statement of the moment. In the end I’m not doing something different than what Giacometti or Kandinsky did. In my opinion, an artist is always doing the same thing. The values are spiritual, philosophical, it’s always the question “Why are we here?” “Where are we going?” “What is it?” “What is an existence?”

Thanks Matthew for introducing me to this wonderful quote.
