"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"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."
