"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"I'm more interested in the poetics, the vastness of the seas say, than I am of the desert. And I'm more interested in the ocean as a way of thinking about space than I am about urbanness. I'm interested in the largeness of the ocean, I'm interested in the Aurora Borealic feeling of the ocean. I'm interested in the sensibility of the ocean, and I'm interested in ships. But I'm not interested in ships to make sculptures that look like ships. I mean, that's way too simplistic. On the other hand, if there's an underlying core of poetry that I go to, I go to the sea."
- Richard Serra
