"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."
"If you spend that time with the work you’ll see the complexity. The painting will then come to you. Sometimes you have to allow that type of looking. Sometimes it can take days to know what to do next in a work. If I don’t have access one day, I can try and work on something different, but sometimes I don’t have access into any of them and I have to draw."
