It doesn't matter how the paint is put on, as long as something is said. (Jackson Pollock)

The visual language of metaphors is one we all speak, consciously or not. We all dream in that language. (Coulter Watt)

If an attunement or sensory response can be evoked from the viewer, a most exquisite form of communication has been established, and the artist's role has been truly fulfilled. (Irving Shapiro)

I believe that if it were left to artists to choose their own labels, most would choose none. (Ben Shahn)

What could be more interesting, or in the end, more ecstatic, than in those rare moments when you see another person look at something you've made, and realize that they got it exactly, that your heart jumped to their heart with nothing in between. (Robert Motherwell)

If an artist tries consciously to do something to others, it is to stretch their eyes, their thoughts, to something they would not see or feel if the artist had not done it. To do this, he has to stretch his own first. (Henry Moore)

Most artwork comes out of someplace you can just tap into, and make that so obvious. And then other people can look at it and say, "I know that place too, that craving." (Judy Pfaff)

The more elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate. (Joseph Priestley)

Artwork must bear elements of beauty and emotions; it must appeal to human feelings because art is an international language connecting people. (Valentin Okorokov)

Be interesting, be enthusiastic... and don't talk too much. (Norman Vincent Peale)

Music, imaginative arts are all-mankind languages... The role of art and artist is to create, keep, defend and develop these all-mankind languages each drop of created art saves the World! (Yaroslaw Rozputnyak)

When the artist observes nature... it is as if nature communicated, through the sensitivity of the artist at that moment, one of its secrets. (Bruno Munari)

I believe that the making of art is primarily for the benefit of the artist. If what the artist has created communicates messages and feelings to others, then it is because of the universality of the human experience that is speaking through the work of art. (David Walker)

You have to find your own way to reconnect. Making art takes a connection. (Elizabeth Winter-Noyes)

Art is a technique of communication. The image is the most complete technique of all communication. (Claes Oldenburg)

Absolutely! I thought I would add a quote that I discovered from a friend...

"Every artist of importance creates his own world, with its own laws -- creates and shapes it in his own shape and image, and no one else's. This is why it is difficult to fit the artist into a world that has already been created, a seven-day, fixed and solidified world: he will inevitably slip out of the set of laws and paragraphs, he will be a heretic." (H.G. Wells, 1922

I found this in escapeintolife, a quote of MC Escher

"In mathematical quarters, the regular division of the plane has been considered theoretically . . . Does this mean that it is an exclusively mathematical question? In my opinion, it does not. [Mathematicians] have opened the gate leading to an extensive domain, but they have not entered this domain themselves. By their very nature they are more interested in the way in which the gate is opened than in the garden lying behind it." The Mathematical Art of M C Escher.
