"...when the piece of work is finished, I suffer considerably. I remain dissatisfied...but this dissatisfaction gives birth to a new idea, I know that the next work will be the result of the dissatisfaction produced by the previous work and a new dissatisfaction which will allow me to go further, this feeling of non-achieval of my desire obliges me, in a certain way,to live and produce another piece of work..."
