“Slow art” refers to a set of encounters between the observer and the object-experiences, not things. … Just as images changed on a movie screen while we watch, so do paintings-provided that we dwell with them. While the canvas does not measurably alter, our experience of it does.
Fine art is not “a means of making a living” or “a way of living a life.” Art that is a matter of life and death cannot be fine or free art. An artist who dedicates his life to art, burdens his art with his life and his life with his art. “Art is Art, and Life is Life.”
