You don't have to say that nature is aware of your existence, that God knows you are here and you are suffering or having joy. The camera gives you proof that you have lived at least once.More Lucas Samaras quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The selfie era offers a big opening: everybody can do it; nowadays even five-year-olds know how to take a nude self-portrait.More Lucas Samaras quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
...I started photographing myself, and found that I could see portions of myself that I had never seen before. Since I face just my face in the mirror, I know pretty much what it's like. When I see a side-view I'm not used to it, and find it peculiar... So, photographing myself and discovering unknown territories of my surface self causes an interesting psychological confrontation.More Lucas Samaras quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If an artist does not have an erotic involvement with everything that he sees, he may as well give up. To be a human being may a very messy thing, but to be an artist is something else entirely, because art is religion, art is sex, art is society. Art is everything.More Lucas Samaras quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At any rate, when I began photographing myself, I could place myself in poses that had not been investigated by other artists. It was an area other artists hadn't touched. Then, I went on from there. I manipulated my image - distorting it, brutalizing it. People thought I was mad, but I felt I had to tell these things. It gave me a kind of excitement.More Lucas Samaras quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
