"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"I think there are some artists for whom it doesn’t matter where they are. Their work is so embedded inside their heads that it’s not informed by all of this other stuff. I’m a very private, internal artist. When I work, even with assistants in the studio, I have my headphones on and I try to get lost."
