Artist is an agent
"... For the artist, if he has the right stuff in him, has a consciousness, in doing his best work, of something, as Ruskin has said, 'not in him but through him.' He has been, as it were, but the agent through which it found expression."
—Harold Speed, The Practice and Science of Drawing
今天读到了这么一段, 大致的意思就是艺术的表达是通过艺术家, 而不是艺术家去表达艺术. 也许说的就是艺术家从来就没有去创造过艺术, 艺术是客观存在的.
一个美的东西, 它的存在是必然的, 但它的出现却是偶然的. 去发现它大概就是艺术家的工作. 这个是一个艰苦,谦虚,伟大的工作.
