"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"Life magazine is in there, and old TV commercials, and fashion photography. It ends up being such a mix of influences that come to bear. But I would never say that there’s a connection between my work and the history of still life, even though what I do in my studio is to set up one still life after another."
