"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"It’s almost like I’m creating flypaper to get you over to look at the kinds of brushstrokes or the impasto layer- and it’s always interesting-looking enough to draw the viewer into it. Then once they’re there, they are confronted with material that they have to think about or just walk away from very fast."
