Description

"In my paintings, I wish to recover the vision of an average and ordinary man... that I have tried to constitute great celebrations. Celebrations are much more highly prized when, instead of setting themselves apart on foreign soil... they occur in our everyday life. It is then that their virtue (to transform our daily life into a marvellous feast) is effective. I am speaking of celebrations of the mind; please may it be understood: celebrations of humors and deliriums. Art addresses itself to the mind, not to the eyes. Too many people think that art addresses itself to the eyes. That is to make of it poor use." - Jean Dubuffet
