"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"I'm surprised when the work appears beautiful, and very pleased. And I think work can be very good and very successful without being able to call it beautiful, although I'm not clear about that. The work is good when it has a certain completeness, and when it's got a certain completeness, then it's beautiful."
