Architecture is inhabited sculpture.
The function of art is to make that understood which in the form of argument would be incomprehensible.
Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave.
What is real is not the external form, but the essence of things.. it is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating its exterior surface.
To see far is one thing, going there is another.
Don't look for obscure formulas or mystery in my work. It is pure joy that I offer you. Look at my sculptures until you see them. Those closest to God have seen them.
The people who call my work 'abstract' are imbeciles.. what they call 'abstract' is in fact the purest realism, the reality of which is not represented by external form but by the idea behind it, the essence of the work.
