The older I grow, the more I find myself alone.
I paint and sculpt to get a grip on reality... to protect myself.
Whores are the most honest girls. They present the bill right away.
When you look at art made by other people, you see what you need to see in it.
Only reality interests me now and I know I could spend the rest of my life in copying a chair.
It is impossible to do a thing the way I see it because the closer I get the more differently I see.
I don't know if I work in order to do something, or in order to know why I can't do what I want to do.
I've been fifty thousand times to the Louvre. I have copied everything in drawing, trying to understand.
That's the terrible thing: the more one works on a picture, the more impossible it becomes to finish it.
It was always disappointing to see that what I could really master in terms of form boiled down to so little.
