"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."
"Why do I have to take something from today, when my anger showed so long ago? So I cannibalize what I did then and I go on with what I’m working on. I had this idea for a number of months about what I would do next- to liberate myself from what I have done and to think about what I really want to do in the future. I thought I would take images from the ‘War Series’ (1966- 70) and pull them apart, re-do them, shove them around, and make an installation on the wall."
