"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 think the artworks are icons. I haven’t used the word ‘iconography’ about it, but I’ve got my vanishing points, my palettes, my surfing-on-acid period. So each thing almost works as an icon or maybe an ideograph— as one idea that has resonance and makes you have thoughts about other ideas."
