"Art has been considered, since the Greeks, to have asits goal the creation of beautiful lines and beautiful color harmonies. If one abolishes this notion, what becomes of art?
I am going to tell you. Art, then, returns to its real function, much more significant than creating shapes and colors agreeable for a so-called pleasure of the eyes.
I don't find this function, assembling colors in pleasing arrangements, very noble. If painting were only that, I should not lose one hour of my time in this activity.
Art addresses itself to the mind, and not to the eyes. It has always been considered in this way by primitive peoples, and they are right. Art is a language, instrument of knowledge, instrument of expression." -Jean Dubuffet
