"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"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."
