"ACTUALLY, I AM NOT A PART OF THE TRADITION. MY MOTHERLAND, HOME AND EVERYTHING ARE IN MY STUDIO, WHEREVER IT IS — IN MOSCOW OR NEAR PARIS. IF YOU WANT, I AM ONE MORE MARGINAL ORIGINAL".
"FOR ME THERE IS NO SENSE IN VERBAL DESIGNATIONS. USUALLY THEY COME FROM OUTSIDE. I CONSIDER MYSELF A REALIST SINCE MY ANY ARTWORK, EVEN THE MOST ABSTRACT ONE, HAS REALITY AS A POINT OF DEPARTURE."
