"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."
"See how the red works with that green over there...how it makes this arc across the space. And it’s not just formal. It’s an arrangement like you’re arranging your living room or arranging your face in the morning. It’s so integral to all of us, that kind of arrangement that makes the form of the painting."
