My work must come close to the flow of life.
I have to settle inside of the secret, into seed, into growth.
I have to prove the possibility of instant
art, direct and spontaneous. My art must resemble a miracle. It must not derive
from conscious processes, and must not become abstraction, fiction, lies.
It must happen for women, resembling a personified, ancient ritual, in which
each mental stirring is made visible, showed, represented.
The creative role of a woman should correspond
to her role in life. It's a question not only of the good earth, but also
of the bad earth, demons, instincts, forces of nature. Tragedies, conflicts,
mysteries are personal.
