Robert Hughes on Drawing:. "The camera, if it's lucky, may tell a different truth to drawing -- but not a truer one. Drawing brings us into a different, a deeper and more fully experienced relation to the object. A good drawing says, `not so fast, buster.' We have had a gutful of fast art and fast food. What we need more of its slow art: art that holds time as a vase holds water: arts that grows out of modes of perceptions and whose skill and doggedness make you think and feel; art that isn't merely sensational, that doesn't get its message across in 10 seconds, that isn't falsely iconic, that hooks onto something deep-running in our natures."
