"Realism is a bad word. In a sense everything is realistic. I see no line between the imaginary and the real."
"What is an artist? A provincial who finds himself somewhere between a physical reality and a metaphysical one... It's this in-between that I'm calling a province, this frontier country between the tangible world and the intangible one - which is really the realm of the artist."
