"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"I wanted to work in stone. The idea of permanence was important to me. It was a puzzle to find the site that felt right to work in. And then once I found the site that felt right, having an idea that seemed to nestle into the site...I wanted to do something that was like a folly, like an architectural folly."
