Maya Lin: American artist best known for designing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
- My goal is to strip things down, not so that they become inhuman but so that you need just the right amount of words or shape to convey what you need to convey. ¶ |
- Art is and should be the act of an individual willing to say something new, something not quite familiar. It is that collection of those singular personal visions transformed from within the mind’s eye to the public. ¶ |
- The artist fights to retain the integrity of a work so that it remains a strong, clear vision. ¶ |
