“I was taught: “you are important, people are important beyond anything else’ I thought that I was big and the work was small. It is not possible to go on that way.” “The function of artwork is the stimulation of sensibilities, the renewal of memories of moments of perfection. Perfection is far away. Art work is hard.” “Artwork is a working through of disappointments and a growing recognition of failure to the point of defeat, but still we wake up, and there is inspiration. We go on.
Be defeated. Carry on. It is a discipline.”
“The truth about life and the mystery of beauty are the same. They are the first concern of everyone.”
