"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"The trouble with naming anything . . . I called a piece once ‘Elephant’, from the story where there are seven blind men and they’re trying to describe what they’re touching and everyone has a different idea- it’s a tree, it’s a snake, it’s a this, it’s a that, it’s soft, it’s hard . . . So the piece was called ‘Elephant’ and everybody kept saying, ‘Where’s the elephant?’ It’s like, ‘Oh geez.' So you can’t name anything anything."
