“There is no progress in art, any more than there is progress in making love. There are simply different ways of doing it.” Man Ray

Party Mask with Shells
Paul Outerbridge, 1936
"Art is life seen through man‘s inner craving for perfection and beauty—his escape from the sordid realities of life into a world of his imagining. Art accounts for at least a third of our civilization, and it is one of the artist‘s principal duties to do more than merely record life or nature. To the artist is given the privilege of pointing the way and inspiring towards a better life."
