Back on track. Here are some very interesting statements, particularly regarding style, made by Mr. Glaser when he spoke at BYU. These comments were recorded by John Dilworth, whose blog I just stumbled across on accident. I had some comments, but I felt that Milton’s words by themselves were perfect, and anything I wrote detracted from the message.
On not developing a unique style: “If people know what you do, they have power over you.”
On style: “I fear arriving at a level of competence (in a specific style) and then being doomed to repeat it forever.”
On intuition: “Our intuition is smarter than our intellect.”
On drawing: “(exercising your drawing skills once a week is) much better than going to the gym.”
On words: “Words are images.”
On art: “fine art is art that has had the impurities removed.” “fine art is art that is created purely with the intent of producing a spiritual effect on the viewer.”
On learning: “(The greatest achievement of my life) has been being able to wake up learn something new each day.”
