RW: Intuitively, it seems to me that among artists there’s some form of the wish—if not always consciously—to find what truly comes from one’s self. The need to find my own thought, my own step, my own perception. It’s a profoundly difficult thing to do, but when one has that experience does that not, in itself, give meaning to one’s life?

EMC: To find one’s self in a gesture or in an artwork, even if vaguely, becomes a hint of our possibilities, which invigorates life with the sense of purpose. Of course, these discoveries don’t happen everyday, but struggling against one’s limitations is often good enough to give meaning to one’s life.
