"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"As you work you really recognize what drives you to make work. For me it’s about being able to make a painting that will arrest me. It has to engage me. And that’s not about any description of who I am or where I come from. All of that informs my perspective on the world and therefore also the direction of the work."
