The Paradox of Active Surrender www.brainpickings.org
"I do not believe that art (all art) and beauty are ever separate, nor do I believe that either art or beauty are optional in a sane society. That puts me on the side of what Harold Bloom calls “the ecstasy of the privileged moment.” Art, all art, as insight, as rapture, as transformation, as joy. Unlike Harold Bloom, I really believe that human beings can be taught to love what they do not love already and that the privileged moment exists for all of us, if we let it. Letting art is the paradox of active surrender. I have to work for art if I want art to work on me." - Jeanette Winterson

"My best works are erotic displays of mental confusions...with intrusions of irrelevant information." Marlene Dumas
"I found that the world accommodated those desires in these weird marginal spaces, where sex wasn’t exactly analogous with desire"

In the studio and other places
Tiffany Titshall works in charcoal on paper from her studio in central Victoria. From landscapes and follies to darker, more overt images of animals and devils, her work always simmers with hints of her inner world.
