Press release

Cliches are always already on the canvas, and if the painter is content to transform the cliche, to deform or mutilate it, to manipulate it in every possible way, this reaction is still too intellectual, too abstract: it allows the cliche to rise again from its ashes, it leaves the painter within the milieu of the cliche, or else gives him or her no other consolation than parody.

- Gilles Deleuze

The more probable the message, the less information it gives. Cliches, for example, are less illuminating than great poems.

- Norbert Weiner
