Jean Dubuffet

French painter and art theorist
For me, insanity is super sanity. The normal is psychotic. Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.More Jean Dubuffet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The real function of art is to change mental patterns ... making new thought possible.More Jean Dubuffet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is no art without intoxication. But I mean a mad intoxication! Let reason teeter! Delirium! The highest degree of delirium! Plunged in burning dementia! Art is the most enrapturing orgy within man's reach.. Art must make you laugh a little and make you a little afraid. Anything as long as it doesn't bore.More Jean Dubuffet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have always directed my attempts at the figurative representation of objects by way of summary and not very descriptive brushstrokes, diverging greatly from the real objective measurements of things, and this has led many people to talk about childish drawing.. ..this position of seeing them (the objects, fh) without looking at them too much, without focussing more attention on them than any ordinary man would in normal everyday life..More Jean Dubuffet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I do not see in what way the face of a man should be a less interesting landscape than any other. A man, the physical person of a man, is a little world, like any other a country, with its towns, and suburbs.. ..As a rule what is needed in a portrait is a great deal of the general, and very little of the particular.More Jean Dubuffet quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
