"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"When I think about an artwork, in its totality from the beginning, usually I’m thinking about certain ideas, a narrative, or a notion. I don’t really start making artwork until I can figure out what it looks like for the person coming upon it for the first time. How do you enter it? How do you allow somebody to come into it?"
