"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."
"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."
