Ad Reinhardt, from ‘How to Look at Art, Arts & Architecture’ (1946)
I love this comic so much. Back before I flunked out of art school, my professors would always require us to write and and speak so much about our work that I felt it drowned out the works themselves. So, I refused to speak or write about any of my works.
"Just fucking look at it," I would say. "I said everything that I needed to in the image."
Luckily, most of my art professors tolerated this attitude because of the quality and quantity of my output, and I was able to survive at least a few semesters longer than I probably should have by the official metrics.
