What are the TOP 10 art quotes by Brad Holland?


  1. Cubism is still the most important art movement for the same reason that John D. is still the most important Rockefeller.


  2. Surrealism: An archaic term. Formerly an art movement. No longer distinguishable from everyday life.


  3. In America, the only truly popular art form is the movies. Most people consider painting a hobby and literature, schoolwork.


  4. Style is the most valuable asset of the modern artist. That's probably why so many styles are reported lost or stolen each year.




  5. Fifty years ago, it was the dream of every bohemian artist to be seen getting out of a limousine wearing blue jeans and sneakers. Today, it's the dream of probably half the people in the country.


  6. Political art expresses the cliches you agree with, unlike propaganda, which expresses the cliches you don't.


  7. Art imitates life. Life imitates high school.


  8. I've never understood why artists, who so often condescend to the cliches of their own culture, are so eager to embrace the cliches of cultures they know nothing about.


  9. Many of the contradictions in Postmodern art come from the fact that we're trying to be artists in a democratic society. This is because in a democracy, the ideal is compromise. In art, it isn't.


  10. The truth is, we haven't really figured out yet how artists are going to thrive in modern mass societies. We're all experiments.
