"I’m interested in abstract expressionism. Through my life, that’s been kind of taboo. Abstract expressionism has been debunked and sneered at- the idea that expressing oneself is interesting to anybody else has been laughed at. And I understand the reasons for that but I think, nevertheless, that each one of us has personal reasons for making things and that the work wouldn’t be interesting or powerful if we didn’t. Each one of us is a subject, a person."
