Speaking On Art is a collection of article excerpts from those with varying backgrounds–whether in art or other–offering a personal perspective on the visual arts.

Artists, philosophers, historians, collectors, laymen–anyone is welcome to submit an article.
“I have begun to recognize that an artist stakes his(her) life on the work. The work at hand is transformation and the will, courage, skill, and daring it takes to do that. In very real terms, the actions an artist takes (in) paint are as irreversible as actions taken on the field of battle.”
