Famous quotes containing the word posture:
“The Dada object reflected an ironic posture before the consecrated forms of art. The surrealist object differs significantly in this respect. It stands for a mysterious relationship with the outer world established by mans sensibility in a way that involves concrete forms in projecting the artists inner model.”
—J.H. Matthews. Object Lessons, The Imagery of Surrealism, Syracuse University Press (1977)
“If ones posture is upright, one has no need to fear a crooked shadow.”
