Art Quote of the Day (2)



“Society’s new fantasies about the artistic mind-set are part of the joke of [Jake and Dinos Chapman’s] Fucking Hell. Artists live on the edge. They dare to go ‘out there,’ to zones the rest of us don’t dare think about, but we’re intrigued when artists bring back their psychic souvenirs. These are primitive Romantic thoughts, separated from anything believable that Romanticism has to say about the connection between the inner life and Nature. But also totally untrue in terms of what the global art scene is really like now, with its population of pampered artist-pets; worthy critics and curators with obedient, suburban imaginations; and Theory high priests, with their droning theology.” - Matthew Collings
