"I am a very craft-oriented person. But at the same time, I want to make something artistic and conceptual. In general, you know, the post-modern artist never paid attention to craftsmanship. That’s something like a nineteenth-century cliché. But to me, I’m going the other way around. I really respect my craftsmanship and my hands. So even though I’ve lived in this post-modern time, I probably call myself a post-modern-experienced pre-post-modern modernist!"

- Hiroshi Sugimoto
