Featured Artists: A GANG OF FOUR

René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp Max Ernst and Man Ray (Paris, 1960)

"My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question - 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable."

Rene Magritte (1898-1967)

“The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”

Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968)

“All good ideas arrive by chance.”

Max Ernst (1891-1976)

“An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an original is motivated by necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.”

Man Ray (1890-1976)
