Another quote for your consideration:

“I’m looking for what the artist is trying to say and what he or she is actually saying, what the work reveals about society and the timeless conditions of being alive.”   —Saltz on his approach to criticism, from Sarah Thornton’s, Seven Days in the Art World. New York: W.W.  Norton & Company. 2008. (174-75)  To read more about Sarah Thornton, Click Here.
