"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"I try to elicit memories so that people are not walking around blinded by their environment. I look at things and wonder what they are and why they are. I see things and wonder why people are not wondering about them. Everything interests me: a gum wrapper could interest me as much as something at the Metropolitan Museum."
