"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 figures that were black and red were taken from Greek vases, the ancient Greek vases on which the images were black on red. I don’t know if the image of what I call the dildo dancer was from a vase, but in any case I transformed it. I loved that figure when I first saw it; it was so full of vitality. Everything I show here is exaggerated; it’s all from my imagination- all of these highly sexualized poses and activities, all either murderous or joyous. I like the idea that I can have that freedom. I’m really grateful."
