"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"I probably have a problem with ideas. Most of the art world is idea-based: this means this; this means that. But I’m really trying to get to something very emotional and murky- more sensation and emotion than idea. Black-and-white is not an idea, but it’s based on something . . . It’s life-based- what you gather and try to document. You keep in touch with who you are."
