"I think the artist is rather like a cat crossing the floor to get its food and thinking of what it wants, not thinking of how it looks. But in the moving towards of what it wants, it looks beautiful to others. And I think a lot of art is like that. The artist is not thinking at all if the thing is going to be beautiful; he’s thinking of dealing with making something he wants to make. It’s only others who perceive beauty in it"
— Richard Serra, 1998.
