"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."
"For me, public space is intrinsically male and heterosexual. And residential space, which is the armature that I chose to make the paintings about and through, is a more polymorphous space that allows, historically, for more polymorphous identity. That’s why residential space becomes amplified, for me, with ideological resonance and, then, worthy of some sort of representation and depiction in the paintings."
