"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"Color is this response to what we are perceiving. So there isn't something out there that we perceive; we are actually creating this vision, and we are responsible for it is something we're rather unaware of. So I actually like to do that, and I look at my art as being somewhere between the limits of perception of the creature that we are, that is- what we can actually perceive and not perceive, like the limits of hearing or seeing- and that of learned perception, or we could call prejudice perception. That's a situation where we have learned to perceive a certain way, but we're unaware of the fact that we learned it."
