"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"Drawings and sculpture develop over time. Sculptures go on for months. They tell different kinds of stories, so they’re not so much one moment. They’re a sequence of moments. That works better for the way I’m put together. And I love stuff . . . and I love tools. And I get to get all these things. So I’m always correcting people who say, ‘All those paintings you did. . . .’ They’re not paintings. I know that because, if you know painters, you know when you’re not one."
