"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."
"We are trying to tell our story, our cosmology, our way of understanding the world, through our work in the same way as the Renaissance painters who were doing Annunciation and Crucifixion scenes. Each one of them did it differently- just as artists like me and Matthew Ritchie or Alexis Rockman, or any of the other artists who are interested in these kinds of things, will use different languages to tell the same story."
