"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."
"One of the underlying interests of my work is to equate the experience of it with the content. That’s kind of a leveling of a difference between conceptual and formal. I use both those languages as essential parts of a whole. By formal, I don’t mean stripes and squares- I mean how a thing exists in the world. And that’s really important to me in terms of how a work relates itself to what is out there, whether it’s the room or the person in front of it, or the circumstances more broadly. The formal aspect is a very small part of the palette."
