„Art is born and takes hold wherever there is a timeless and insatiable longing for the spiritual, for the ideal: that longing which draws people to art. Modern art has taken the wrong turn in abandoning the search for the meaning of existence in order to affirm the value of the individual for his own sake.“

—  Andrei Tarkovsky, livro Sculpting in Time

Contexto: Art is born and takes hold wherever there is a timeless and insatiable longing for the spiritual, for the ideal: that longing which draws people to art. Modern art has taken the wrong turn in abandoning the search for the meaning of existence in order to affirm the value of the individual for his own sake. What purports to be art begins to looks like an eccentric occupation for suspect characters who maintain that any personalised action is of intrinsic value simply as a display of self-will. But in an artistic creation the personality does not assert itself it serves another, higher and communal idea. The artist is always the servant, and is perpetually trying to pay for the gift that has been given to him as if by a miracle. Modern man, however, does not want to make any sacrifice, even though true affirmation of the self can only be expressed in sacrifice. We are gradually forgetting about this, and at the same time, inevitably, losing all sense of human calling.

„Modernity is the transitory, fugitive, contingent, is but one half of art, of which the other half is the eternal and immutable.“

—  Charles Baudelaire, Le Peintre de la vie moderne

La modernité, c’est le transitoire, le fugitif, le contingent, la moitié de l’art, dont l’autre moitié est l’éternel et l’immuable.

„Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth.“

—  George Sand, livro La Mare au diable

L'art n'est pas une étude de la réalité positive; c'est une recherche de la vérité idéale.

„Art before the modern period is as much art as Neanderthal man is man.“

—  Joseph Kosuth American conceptual artist 1945

It is for this reason that around the same time I replaced the term "work" for art proposition. Because a conceptual work of art in the traditional sense, is a contradiction in terms.
