Christine A. Tarantino is an American artist (b. 1948, New York City) who specializes in visual poetry and artist books. She has also been known as Words of Light, CHRISTAR and 'the homeless poet'.
As soon as I make a mark on my paper, that mark is dead. It no longer flows, it stops. I consider it an artistically ethical challenge then. Do I want the marks I make to really be there? And should all marks of art be beautiful? I say yes, to try is to aspire.
A picture can be skillfully painted but totally devoid of art. Art then is the 'power to percieve the beautiful and of expressing it in artistic form'. This is the true definition of fine art. Always has been, always will be.
