"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Untitled #9 (A Decorated Chronology of Insistence and Resignation)" (1992-93)
"For me, from very early on, that attention to really fine craft was a way of temporarily transgendering. I like that feeling. I don’t know if I can explain that, but maybe it’s an enculturated transgendering- not some sort of essentialist idea of gender. In other words, I feel very liberated and free when I’m working, being dutiful and attentive to the object."
