The aim of art is to create space  (Frank Stella Quotes) I don’t like a lot of the stuff that goes on in the art world, but it’s hard to be old and like what goes on around you.  (Frank Stella Quotes) When I’m painting the picture, I’m really painting a picture. I may have a flat-footed technique, or something like that, but still, to me, the thrill, or the meat of the thing, is the actual painting. I don’t get any thrill out of laying it out  (Frank Stella Quotes) But, after all, the aim of art is to create space - space that is not compromised by decoration or illustration, space within which the subjects of painting can live.  (Frank Stella Quotes) There’s a lot of difference between being well known and being notorious and the black paintings didn’t make me well known - they made me notorious.  (Frank Stella Quotes) No art is any good unless you can feel how it’s put together. By and large it’s the eye, the hand and if it’s any good, you feel the body. Most of the best stuff seems to be a complete gesture, the totality of the artist’s body; you can really lean on it.  (Frank Stella Quotes) I like real art. It’s difficult to define ‘real’ but it is the best word for describing what I like to get out of art and what the best art has. It has the ability to convince you that it’s present - that it’s there. You could say it’s authentic... but real is actually a better word, broad as it may be  (Frank Stella Quotes) You see what you know!  (Frank Stella Quotes) What you see is what you see  (Frank Stella Quotes) One learns about painting by looking at and imitating other painters  (Frank Stella Quotes) A sculpture is just a painting cut out and stood up somewhere  (Frank Stella Quotes) No art is any good unless you can feel how it’s put together. By and large it’s the eye, the hand and if it’s any good, you feel the body. Most of the best stuff seems to be a complete gesture, the totality of the artist’s body; you can really lean on it  (Frank Stella Quotes) I don’t like a lot of the stuff that goes on in the art world, but it’s hard to be old and like what goes on around you  (Frank Stella Quotes) Any artist can’t get away from the way the world works, which is that it wants to know what you did, and you’re only interested in what you’re doing right now  (Frank Stella Quotes) One learns about painting by looking at and imitating other painters. I can’t stress enough how important it is, if you are interested at all in painting, to look and to look a great deal at painting. There is no other way to find out about painting  (Frank Stella Quotes) Making art is complicated because the categories are always changing. You just have to make your own art, and whatever categories it falls into will come later  (Frank Stella Quotes) I don’t like to say I have given my life to art. I prefer to say art has given me my life  (Frank Stella Quotes) Architecture can’t fully represent the chaos and turmoil that are part of the human personality, but you need to put some of that turmoil into the architecture, or it isn’t real  (Frank Stella Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
