”When you start working, everybody is in your studio - the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas - all are there. But as you continue, they start leaving one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you’re lucky, even you leave.”
Musician John Cage talking to painter Philip Guston, quoted in his daughter Musa Meyer’s book Night Studio
