"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I think I’m most comfortable when I’m not in control of systems. So I often make work in which I almost attempt to make my hand disappear. I’m more comfortable with thinking that it’s not there- that the world is acting on the work or that the true generators of image, of ideas, are a vast compendium of people and factors rather than artists in their studios."
