"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"Sometimes I use found, printed paper with images that I submit to a painter friend. I tell him to delete specific items out of this ‘stage-set’ (maybe the references are too didactic; maybe they’re too clear), and he creates original paintings with a wash. So he deletes some elements, and then it becomes a complete abstraction and, now, something can be applied on top of this image."
