Fashion and Art

From Mark Cummings

Published before 2005


Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
Oscar Wilde
Irish dramatist, novelist, & poet (1854 - 1900)

This is a quote I used to hear all the time from John Angel at school. Now the big challenge to those of us that are revolutionaries and are interested in steering art back to the grand old tradition it used to be; is to transcend fashion and reach to the soul of our viewer regardless of the fashions of any given time...

Just a thought.
