All art is emotion

I've been searching for this phrase to try and track down who said it, but I'm beginning to suspect it must have been one of my lecturers or a teacher once.

It's a truism, but it's not the whole story. I think that all art is emotion wrapped in a formal problem. Just the formal problem is empty practising. Just the emotion is mere blathering. The two together, that's art.
