"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."
"In the Helga pictures I set out to create a total portrait of a young man using Andrew Wyeth’s Helga paintings as a template to explore how one defines someone in images using a description of femininity to describe a man, so that you start to wonder with the Wyeth portraits whether it is a feminine pose or an artist’s pose. Is it Wyeth’s pose, is it Helga’s pose?"
