Dagmar Andres-Dahmen, Artist

"Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth." ~ George Sand
 
"I cannot be so many things. I cannot be something for everyone... Woman, beautiful, artist, wife, housekeeper, cook, saleslady, all these things. I cannot even be myself, nor know what I am." ~ Eva Hesse, diary entry on January 1964
 
Memory: "They are my documents, I keep watch over them... To reminisce and woolgather is negative. You have to differentiate between memories. Are you going to them or are they coming to you. If you are going to them, you are wasting time. Nostalgia is not productive. If they come to you, they are the seeds for sculpture." - Louise Bourgeois
