"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"The drawing process is extremely important for the paintings. The paintings
are very controlled; the drawings are when I actually come up with the material
for the paintings. So there are no paintings without the drawings, but they’re very different from each other. Sometimes it looks like two different people have done them."
