"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"Since there is no direction- usually no title- you’re basically looking at this with your baggage of intellectual knowledge and your memories, desires and emotional life, all combined. So you make your own collage and then you bring it to the piece. You juxtapose yourself- attach yourself- to the image and then a new thing is created. You are fragmented, and the piece comes from fragmentation."
