"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"Some of the same characters appear in the grids of the ‘Deluxe’ prints as well as the paintings. One thing that the works have in common is that I think of them as built paintings. There’s very little paint ever in the work, but they feel very built."
