"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."
"I used a lot of oranges because they’re orange! Here they were in this birdcage. And I like that they’re orange and they have a beautiful color and that they’re so luscious- almost a cliché of beauty and sexuality...still lifes and Cézanne. Oranges immediately bring all of that up. And for me they are also like electricity on the walls. Though they’re participating in the work like a still life, in fact they’re degenerating and changing, and they’re fluid."
