"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."
"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter. The work becomes pretty because I wouldn’t be able to look at a work about something as grotesque as what I’m thinking about, and as grotesque as projecting one’s ugly soul onto another’s pretty body, and representing that in an ugly way."
