"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"I know the work looks visually micro-managed, and maybe it is. In the chaos of what I’m showing you, there is actually a rationalism of structure underlying everything. But a big part of the making of the painting is me thinking on my feet and making decisions on the spot about how to bring this representation to some fruition. I don’t always know the outcome."
