"I'd like to draw a line between rules and craftmanship: To me the modernist theory that art always needs a breach of rules, an "innovative value", seems unsuitable in practice. If you look around you see that a good share of art lives on piracy - old ideas in new makeup. [..] To me "good" art is technically well-made art.“
