"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."
"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."
