The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.

The most seductive thing about art is the personality of the artist himself.
I'm not a model, I'm an artist. In one of my videos, I'm doing this shot of me with no make-up on where I've just woken up, and I don't think a lot of people would be comfortable enough to do that. But that's the way I look. This is who I am. Let's enjoy it. Let's just live life to the full while we're all here.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.
To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.

People see my photos and think I labor over my image and I'm this cool, brooding artist. But I'm just having fun with it.
Seeing is more than a physiological phenomenon... We see not only with our eyes but with all that we are and all that our culture is. The artist is a professional see-er.
I am not a Christian artist, I am an artist who is a Christian.
The modern artist... is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces.
What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn't be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought.
