"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"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."
