"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"I like the wall. The wall being part of the work matters to me a great deal- not taking for granted how these things are in space and in the world. A painting is a conventional form, a rectangular thing that hangs on the wall. It’s a convention that you can then forget about, and then just look at what’s inside the painting. And a sculptural pedestal- that’s another form where you put the thing on the pedestal and then sort of forget how it’s in the world. You just look at this thing on the pedestal."
