On Cinema

Triptychs are the things I Iike doing the most, and I think this may be related to the thought I’ve sometimes had of making a film.
You know, I’ve often said to myself that I would have liked to have been a film director if I hadn’t been a painter.
During the silent era, the image had tremendous force.
I was certainly, when I was much younger, influenced by the films of Eisenstein, and then after that I was very influenced by films of Buñuel […] I can’t say how they directly affected me but they certainly have affected my whole attitude to visual things.
