“...There are issues worth advancing in images worth admiring; and the truth is never "plain," nor appearances ever "sincere."
To try to make them so is to neutralize the primary, gorgeous eccentricity of imagery in Western culture since the Reformation: the fact that it cannot be trusted, that imagery is always presumed to be proposing something contestable and controversial. This is the sheer, ebullient, slithering, dangerous fun of it. No image is presumed inviolable in our dance hall of visual politics, and all images are potentially powerful.”
― Dave Hickey, "The Invisible Dragon: Essays on Beauty" 1993
“Broadly speaking, genius is not born with sight, but blind; and it is not itself that opens its eyes, but the subtle influences of a myriad of stimulating exterior circumstances.”
― Mark Twain, “The Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc” 1896
