"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."
"That was kind of the Meeting House I always wanted to see. I guess I like the literal quality, or feeling, or sensation, in that I want to feel light physically. We drink it as vitamin D; it's actually a food. We are heliotropic, and it has a big effect on the skin. We also have a big psychological relation to light. All or most spiritual experiences, near death experiences, are described with a vocabulary of light. This quality to feel light exists, almost like we see it in a dream."
