You're really preparing for those few hours where there's some kind of umbilical cord attached between you and it. You do it, the work is done, and this cord seems to slacken, then you leave the studio and those rocks aren't there anymore [in your stomach]. Then you can go to a movie in the afternoon -- two movies -- you feel okay. . . ."

Philip Guston, "A Conversation Between Philip  Guston and Joseph Ablow," Boston University, 1966
