"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"If you can remove judgments, you can have acceptance. And it’s really the highest state that art can take you to. So if I make a painting like Play-Doh (1995–2008), it’s really to represent one of those moments: you look at it and you just cannot make an aesthetic judgment about it. There is just a sense of acceptance."
