"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"For me, and I think this is different for all artists, I can have as much control as I want to have. But the minute I start controlling it too much, it stops making sense. I don’t want that mark-by-mark control. I want a certain amount...and then I want to let go of it. And I’m not talking about happy accidents. That’s not like what really happens in the work. If I let something just slide off, it’s not something that I’m not seeing. I see every little inch of it. It’s all about getting what I intend and what my head and my emotions want and what my arm does. And letting my arm do things that I think I don’t know about."
