"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"The heroic has an epic scale to it. If you look at my baseball works, for instance, there is a kind of larger than life attitude to a lot of it. But then not all the works are a pure adulation of the ball players. I mean they go into some pretty sordid avenues. My drawings dwell on that subject quite often as well."
