Our heads are round so thought can change direction.

Francis Picabia

This observation comes from French painter Francis Picabia, whose career embodied this idea so perfectly the quote was chosen as the title of a Museum of Modern Art exhibit about his life’s work. A singularly eclectic and unpredictable artist, Picabia was known for challenging conventional modernist art and frequently changing his own artistic style. His words and art remind us that creating something truly innovative requires being able to think flexibly, always staying open to new approaches, ideas, and possibilities.
