"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"I don't think the goal of art is just this travel of the mind, the travel of the passion to discover more. I always describe art as a catalytic structure that actually creates the possibility for languages to be formed, or the place where language is to be formed. And I keep saying that because I want to be clear that art can have an effect, a movement."
