"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I’m like a modern-day flâneur. I like to walk through the city and find the details and then abstract them and make them my own. I’m not speaking for a community or trying to make a sociopolitical point. It becomes an artwork, but it has these references which I find interesting. At the end it’s my mapping- my subjectivity- and me trying to find those memories and details that point to something that I’m trying to really figure out."
