+ I have always been very much involved in the
pseudo biological cycle of production, consumption
and destruction. And for a long time, I have been
anguished by the fact that one of its most conspicuous
material results is the flooding of our world
with junk and rejected odd objects.
+ I found that it's less difficult to cut the
wire here in New York, for instance, than in Paris.
Because if you want to be a little bit solitary
and work very hard, you can do it more easily
in New York than in a town like Paris or London.
Because you depend so much for human relationships
here on the phone. If you don't answer your phone,
you are quite a lonely couple.
+ Through the history of art we can see through
the emotional life, and sometimes the financial
security of some of the artists, some transformation.
And I really believe that it's generally about
the same kind of transformation and the same kind
of reaction. We are a little bit less individual
than we would like to believe or guess we are.
+ When I was a child of four I wasn't really drawing
like a child, I wasn't sketching as a child. I
would sketch and I was using perspective, the
good relationship of the subject.
