"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."
"Painting is a whole other deal. It’s so physical. You’re squeezing the paint out of the tube, which is fun. You’re mixing up the paint. There’s a whole other kind of process, physical process, to get over to the space, to the canvas, to the actual painting, and then start putting the paint on."
