I want to work independently of the life force, in places that are untroubled by the life force. Artistic expression is something that springs from the self at a particular moment yet keeps a slight distance from the self as it is at that moment. To allow that distance is the only way to broaden one’s universe. The self is not “ism,” feeling, or social role but a vital entity that encompasses everything, including life itself.

September 1959
