"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."
"The Vessel, there is something almost religious about it. The way it’s radiating feels almost Catholic in some way. I can see it going in that direction, the idea of a center of energy and irradiation of that energy and the body. Something that wasn’t as clear before in my work."
—David Altmejd in Boundaries (2012)
