"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."
"I liked the fact that this was a very direct way to make a print. It was doing what printmaking does. It wasn’t manipulating anything. I’m just dropping acid on a plate and the acid bites into the plate, and 'bo-dink!' you print it, and that’s it. Of course, that’s not it, but the directness really thrilled me, and the fact that that’s what I’m interested in- these drips and drops- really worked for me."
