"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."
"There’s really nothing special that an artist or anybody can do, whatever your area of interest may be, because the only thing you can do is to follow your interests. That takes you to a metaphysical place,and that’s where you find art. If you try to create art, it’s a decorative process and you’re just really kind of wasting time, spinning gears, until you get so bored with yourself that you just stop the process and ask yourself what you really want to do."
