“I want also to say a last thing about Picasso. He used to say: ‘I tried my whole life to draw like a child again’. Because he could draw so well. But I don’t know, again, if it’s the man – woman thing, but I my whole life wanted to be wise and old – not to look old! – but to be so wise, I don’t want to be like a child, because I am like a child.”
– Marlene Dumas
