The way I have always understood it right from the start is basically there’s no such thing as a “professional” artist. There’s an artist who’s turned his endeavor into a vocation and that the real issue is to have historical ambition. And in a sense the way one could describe a historical ambition is that one would like to sit in the pantheon of the greats. Whether one does that or not is something else? But that’s the scale of the ambition. — Malcolm Morley
