"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."
"A lot of the pieces that I do- these single pieces- they’re comments on the larger work that I’m working with or whatever the subject matter happens to be at that point. So they’re very short comments- marginalia- and I have many, many short comments. My work is full of marginalia."
- Ida Applebroog
