"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."
"When I stumbled on the horse idea, I went, 'Okay, this can be my Jasper John flag, my target. This can be nothing to me because I don’t like horses. I can draw a line through it and make it flat.' I could take all the things that I’d learned and negate painting as much as possible in terms of illusionism and shadow and composition and stuff."
