"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."
"I wouldn't say that I never think about beauty as an aesthetic issue. But I certainly think it's a much more complicated issue then it's imagined to be. I think sometimes when people think of beauty they think of prettiness as a sign of beauty, but it's a lot more complicated and a lot deeper than that."
