"I cherish the grain of sand that put the big machine out of order and the wind that postpones the launching of the rocket ship. My work is the result of all these little and big catastrophies, abnormalities and unexpected and abrupt changes in the course of history. Very often my beautiful wife smiles, looking at these silly paintings. And I love when my wife smiles."—Jacques Flechemuller
