«Art is a sphinx. The beauty of the sphinx is that it is up to you to interpret it. When you have found an interpretation, you are already healed. The common mistake is to believe that the sphinx can only give one correct answer. In reality it gives a hundred, a thousand, or maybe none. Interpretation undoubtedly does not restore the truth to us, but the exercise of interpreting saves us».
