„Real art has the capacity to make us nervous.“

—  Сьюзен Зонтаг, Context: Real art has the capacity to make us nervous. By reducing the work of art to its content and then interpreting that, one tames the work of art. Interpretation makes art manageable, comformable. "Against Interpretation" (1964), p. 8

„All art is probably erotic in its ultimate character, but painting more than anything else is a purely nervous erotic activity“

—  Patrick Swift British artist 1927 - 1983
Context: All art is probably erotic in its ultimate character, but painting more than anything else is a purely nervous erotic activity... The eroticism of Caravaggio is special because it exists in that area between the simple sensual appreciation of the object which produces the desire to posses it, and the passionate but detached concern of the Observer, which also seeks to posses but to posses through understanding.

„To leave the reader free to decide what your work means, that’s the real art; it makes the work inexhaustible.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin American writer 1929
Context: Sometimes one’s very angry and preaches, but I know that to clinch a point is to close it. To leave the reader free to decide what your work means, that’s the real art; it makes the work inexhaustible. "The magician" by Maya Jaggi in The Guardian (17 December 2005) http://books.guardian.co.uk/departments/childrenandteens/story/0,,1669112,00.html
