"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"The Thirteen Seasons (Heavy on the Winter) #3: What’s Limp in 3D I Erect in 2D" (1994)
"When I went to undergraduate school I studied to be a painter and I was taught mostly by GI-bill artists who studied with Hoffman or other modernists like Léger. But Hoffman was the primary theorist for compositional ideas in painting. That’s what I was taught, but I always had this perverse kind of version of it. And it was already kind of perversely being done by the early pop people like Rauschenberg- obviously still painting in a Hoffman manner."
