    "Human beings will always try to produce, through their creation of objects in one artistic field, pictures, portraits allegories suitable for each generation. And I think that the history of art has developed in such a manner as to not exclude anything. Above all one cannot exclude a material: e.g. marble." (Cragg quoted in exh.cat.A New Thing Breathing, Tate Gallery Liverpool 2000, p.83)
