Archaic Quotations

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

Painting and sculpture are very archaic forms. It's the only thing left in our industrial society where an individual alone can make something with not just his own hands, but brains, imagination, heart maybe.
Philip Guston

Beth Ditto

Peter York

Octavio Paz
