"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"For me it’s really important that the work here displays an aesthetic of decay along with the sunken boat with the broken ceramic pieces. They form a unity in showing the power of destruction, the beauty of destruction, whether it’s from nature- because the boat has sunk- or through other forces. It’s really the beauty of decay and death that holds a power here."
