"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."
"More Love Hours Than Can Ever Be Repaid" and "The Wages of Sin" (1987)
"I’m more of a Marxist than a symbolist. Always, my interest in popular forms was not to glorify them- because I really dislike popular culture in most cases. I think it’s garbage, but that’s the culture I live in and that’s the culture people speak. I’m an avant-gardist."
- Mike Kelley
