Oskar Kokoschka Art Quotes


"Consciousness is the grave of things, the place where they cease to exist, beyond which they end. And when they have ended, it seems that they no longer have any essential existence except in the visions in me."  -- Oskar Kokoschka

"That's why my work is now more powerful and less arbitrary, as if seen by another person, and illuminated from outside." -- Oskar Kokoschka


"The most fundamental in me is coming uppermost, and the transient, the sensational, is dispersing, because it can't adversely influence what is essential to me."  -- Oskar Kokoschka


"However ugly a face may be, we can discover some beauty in it if we first experience wonder before it and then begin to understand it, too."  -- Oskar Kokoschka
