"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."
"When I did ‘Black Kites,’ I was interested in how we perceive volume, how we perceive tri-dimensionality. I am interested in the pattern in the grid and how we perceive truth, always through filters of light, darkness, or many other things. It’s not a pure vision; it’s always there in layers- cultural and physical layers. I was just trying to impose a homogeneous pattern on a very complex tri-dimensional object- a human cranium."
