Quote of the Day

waterfall2

 

Contradictions of perspective.

Contrasts of light. Contrasts of

form. Points of view impossible

to achieve in drawing and

painting. Foreshortenings with

a strong distortion of the objects,

with a crude handling of matter.

Moments altogether new, never

seen before…compositions 

whose boldness outstrips the

imagination of painters… 

 

Then the creation of those instants which do not exist,

contrived by means of photomontage. The negative transmits

altogether new stimuli to the sentient mind and eye.

 

Alexander Rodchenko

(1891 – 1956)

 Soviet graphic artist, sculptor, painter and photographer
