Kazimir Malevich Quote
Everywhere there is craft and technique, everywhere there is artistry and form. Art itself, technique, is ponderous and clumsy, and because of it awkwardness it obstructs that inner element... All craft, technique, and artistry, like anything beautiful, results in futility and vulgarity.
