"In art you have to go on for a long time before you can say `I have done something.` When you are young, you try to understand the world. As you grow old, you try to understand yourself. Your work then becomes the essence of these efforts. An artist comes to terms with certain images. He arrives at certain conventions by a process of reduction."
