It’s my idea of beauty, which is not about physical attributes, about how blond your hair is or whatever.
I think beauty is close to inner grace: it is something that comes from within you, it is not about surface.
Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director, Valentino
There is always, in the fine arts, a physical interface between the artist’s esthetic vision and the material result he seeks. The interface may be the application of brush to canvas, chisel to marble, bow to string… It may be the control of voice in song or the control of body in dance. It is the mastery of the interface that comprises the artistry; it is what constitutes the ‘art’ in fine art.
