Curves of Inspiration

Concept cover, book design.

I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line,
hard and inflexible, created by man.
I am attracted to free-flowing, sensual curves.
The curves that I find in the mountains of my country,
in the sinuousness of its rivers,
in the waves of the ocean,
and on the body of the beloved woman.
Curves make up the entire Universe,
the curved Universe of Einstein.

– Oscar Niemeyer

In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.

I think only of objects: of a leg or an arm,
of the wonderful sense of foreshortening,
breaking through the plane,
of the division of space,
of the combination of straight lines in relation to curved ones.

– Max Beckmann

Men are governed by lines of intellect – women: by curves of emotion.
