«Aucune image, aucune idée antérieure ne précède la seconde où je vais peindre; le premier geste peut être arbitraire. Il l'est le plus souvent. Mais le second est implacablement lié au premier, et ensuite, il y a un enchaînement presque cybernétique de chacun de ces gestes. Je suis victime de mon premier geste.» "No image, no previous idea comes before the time when I am about to paint. The first move might be arbitrary. Most often, it is arbitrary. But the second one is irremediably related to the first. Then there is some kind of cybernetic sequence of each of these movements. I am a victim of my first move." Georges Mathieu
