"The paintings were made from wood and it took quite a while: I would coat them with fifty coats of paint and have to press things with glue and put the frames on. I couldn’t make them as quickly as I wanted, and it was only after maybe three years of doing them that way that I realized I had to have a mold to produce quantities."
