"It is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression" - Henri Cartier-Bresson

"Simplicity demands our deepest attention in order to be appreciated" - William DeRaymond

"Complicated is easy. It always seems to me that the simpler my paintings are, the better they feel. How much information do we need to convey a feeling? Not a heck of a lot" - Jack Dickerson

"As I grew older, I realized that it was much better to insist on the genuine forms of nature, for simplicity is the greatest adornment of art" - Albrecht Durer
