"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"Because I’m very fluid, I need to set up rules. I have a very organized work schedule. I work every day, a certain number of hours. I don’t have creative blocks: if it’s going bad, it’s just a bad day and I wind my way through. I push myself to stay on task and work. I do really large-scale paintings. The one I’m working on now is nine by thirty feet. And somewhere in that landscape you get lost, completely lost, inside the body of a painting. You don’t know where you’re going, and it’s not speaking to you, but you just keep moving through it and you find your way. You find a space that looks familiar, and you make your home there for a little bit. And you don’t get too comfortable because you’ve got to charge off again."
