"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"My beginnings were with the abstract expressionists. Part of this artistic breakthrough, which perhaps I have some historical sensitivity to, means that in the making and the critiquing there is all of life and there has to be all of life because if you don’t have all of life, then how can you make anything that really has importance?"
