One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Purpose for Expression

In general, art results from one person's desire
to communicate with another -
All means are equally good -

In painting as in literature, the means is often mistaken for the end - Nature is the means not the end - if one can achieve something by changing nature - one must do so - When one is deeply moved a landscape will have a certain effect on one - by portraying this landscape one will produce a picture of one's own mood - it is this mood which is the essential thing - nature is just the means - how far the picture then resembles nature is irrelevant - To explain a picture is impossible - it is precisely because one cannot explain it in any other way that it is painted - One can merely give a little hint as to the lines one had been thinking along
I do not believe in art which has not thrust itself into being by a person's desire to open his heart
All art, literature and music must be produced with the heart's blood.
Art is the heart's blood.

- Edvard Munch
