"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."
