"Convolutions" — Artist Quotes

Arthur Dove, Fog Horns, 1929, oil on canvas.

See what some Convolutions artists have to say about their artistic approaches: 

 We cannot express the light in nature because we have not the sun. We can only express the light we have in ourselves.”
— Arthur Dove

“I was attracted to photography because it was technical, full of gadgets, and I was obsessed with science. But at some point...I had a sense that photography could provide a bridge from the world of science to the world of art, or image. Photography was a means of crossing into a new place I didn’t know.
— Adam Fuss

“Everything in the world has a spirit which is released by its sound.”
— Oskar Fischinger
