Notational

The arts have this tremendous optimism and belief. I mean, you have to be an optimist to be an artist. But then, of course, artists are some of the most cynical people you can imagine. So there is this great irony in cynical people being involved in areas of great belief. And it’s something I love. I love the irony, and I enjoy it, and as I said, I never thought that artists were so much looking for answers as they were just posing questions. I can’t think of a more hopeful act than to be an artist. To decide to be an artist is a very hopeful act.
