"What causes me to go to Realism? Realism for me is more reel ['real']. If someone takes Yogya, I want to fight for Yogya for reel. If I have not eaten, I must eat rice. Reel rice. If I fight for sovereignty, I want reel sovereignty. I do not want [it] symbolic. If one is not sated, it is not real. European painting, before the Renaissance, followed the realistic. 'Ism', ultimately, is just an aid for speech."
