"artwork is a representation of our devotion to life..the enormous pitfall is devotion to oneself instead of to life. all works that are self-devoted are absolutely ineffective."

Agnes Martin was/is amazing! If you haven't read it, get her book, "Writings"- there are chapters I could read every day.

Yes, yes, yes! I think it's that "devotion to self" that is the reason so many "artists" think they are, um, artists. xox

that agnes sure was a smart cookie..just ordered her book 'writings' today.
and those so called artists can call themselves anything they want...it just doesn't mean they're GOOD artists.
