"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"I’m also working on more fragmented pieces- of body parts that sprout from mounds, that have on tube socks or sneakers. They’re not obviously attached to any body that we would recognize as a body. I’m also still very interested in looking at those structures and that way of dealing with the figure as part of this larger conglomerate."
