"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"We wanted some paintings to be pretty enough that you would want to walk up to them and see the terrible things that have transpired in Guantanamo or Afghanistan. Others we wanted to be black and white so they seem credible- as real as the documents unfortunately are. I’ve focused on documents about the conflict in the Middle East, both the last Gulf War and this one. I’ve only worked with material that’s already been released. I have not made any Freedom of Information Act requests because there’s so much to sift through that’s already out."
