"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"The white on the dark ground sometimes made blue, so you would have a kind of blue halo- but there was no real blue pigment involved. It was just the white and the dark gray that caused that. I was aware of that, and it all became part of the composition."
