"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."
"Romance? It’s just low grade. If left to my devices, it’s not so great. There are a lot of things which are determined by a kind of romantic impulse, but I try to squelch it. The work is a kind of system. Sometimes I do this canceling thing: if it gets too ‘one thing’, I will try to overlay it with another so it doesn’t get too literal, too poetic, too tough, too anything, too red. Cancel it with a little bit of green or get a vibration."
