" There are times when I think, all the things that are going on in the world, all the things that are wrong, is it really all right for a grown person to sit here playing with forms? And it is like a game when I start - just moving things around. But I think I do it just because we live life in such impossible times. You go out in the streets, you see what's there, you come home and put something together with an order of its own ... it keeps you sane! " - ( 1989 )
