Odilon Redon Quote: “It is precisely from the regret left by the imperfect work that the next one can be born.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “Nobody will enter into your hopes: dreams, desires, projects are weak and solitary abstractions that nobody will formulate with us. In his aspirations toward the future or beyond it, man is unhappy because he is alone, all that he sees, all that he is, makes him suffer, except for what he loves. If I ahd a son to direct, I would tell him: ‘Leave, go alone in the midst of men since you must become one of them. The individual soars only in liberty.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “The good work proceeds with tenacity, intention, without interruption, with an equal measure of passion and reason and it must surpass that goal the artist has set for himself.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “When I am alone, I love the wide roads. There, I have conversations with myself. My free steps move easily and my body leaves my spirit free of obstacles; it discourses, it reasons, it presses me with questions.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “I am certain about what I will never do – but not about what my art will render.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “It is nature also who orders us to obey the gifts she has given us. Mine have led me to dreams; I submitted to the torments of imagination and the surprises she gave me under my pencil; but I directed and led those surprises in accordance with the laws of the organism of art which I know, which I feel, with the single goal of producing in the spectator, by sudden attraction, the whole evocation, and the whole enticement of the uncertain within the confines of thought.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “It is difficult to judge one’s contemporaries; perhaps it is impossible to understand them.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “I venerate with emotion everything that comes from the heart when it is simple, silent and confident. It is a sensual pleasure, subtle and touching, to try to reach characters through the varied outer appearances of human conditions.”
Odilon Redon Quote: “If the art of an artist is the song of his life, a grave of sad melody, I must have sounded the note of gaiety in color.”
