"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 have over five hundred images in my art at this point to choose from, to re-use. Originally, the images were mostly from art books. And a lot came from magazines, contemporary media. Ancient art has influenced me, and I’ve taken great liberties in using the format of the Egyptian papyrus and writing, and the imagery of the ancient Greeks."
