Beauty is sometimes born of pain.

Aesthetics have substantial political consequences. How one views oneself as beautiful or not beautiful or desirable or not desirable has deep consequences in terms of one’s feelings of self-worth and one’s capacity to be a political agent.

The aesthetics aren’t merely a side note, they’re as important as anything else.

Aesthetics is both politics and philosophy, a series of agreements and disagreements between subjective minds.

Creating is about sharing ideas, sharing aesthetics, sharing what you believe in with other people.

Art is an invention of aesthetics, which in turn is an invention of philosophers… What we call art is a game.

Aesthetic pleasure is not to be taken lightly; it’s very important for the spirit and therefore the health.

I find beauty in the continual shaping of chaos which clearly embodies the primordial power of nature’s performance.
