"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"I’m not good at saying, ‘This is what the work is about.’ There are things very much connected to me and the time I’m living in, but I just can’t say, ‘This is about the IRA, and this is about South Africa.’ It’s as if the information comes in, goes through me, and comes out in my hands."
