M. C. Escher
My work is a game, a very serious game.
He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder.
We adore chaos because we love to produce order.
What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness.
By keenly confronting the enigmas that surround us, and by considering and analysing the observations that I have made, I ended up in the domain of mathematics, Although I am absolutely without training in the exact sciences, I often seem to have more in common with mathematicians than with my fellow artists.
I believe that producing pictures, as I do, is almost solely a question of wanting so very much to do it well.
Originality is merely an illusion.
