Henri Matisse speaking about drawing and painting

" I don't paint things. I only paint the difference between things. " Henri Matisse
アーサー's insight:

From Open Culture. Translation:

"Me, I believe that painting and drawing are the same thing. Drawing is a painting done in a simpler way [or with "limited/reduced resources"]. On a white surface, a sheet of paper, with a plume [or "pen"] and some ink, one creates a certain contrast with volumes; one can change the quality of the paper given supple surfaces, light [or clear] surfaces, hard surfaces without always adding shadow or light. For me, drawing is a painting with limited means/resources."

Artists Yasiin Bey and Niels Shoe Meulman reinterpret Muhammad Ali’s greatest words, challenging voice vs. written word.

Louis Vuitton incorporating Muhammad Ali into their brand culture. Talking about trying to attach meaning to your products. Great stimulus for an inquiry into the ethics of creating and using cultural symbols to (ultimately) drive sales. (I realize me sharing this might also help their campaign but the issue is more important)
