"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"I’m pretty interested in this idea of looking down at a scene, getting distance from it and looking down upon it I’m almost positive it’s from my walks and the geography here- the creek bed and the arroyos. Sometimes I’m above, and sometimes if I’m walking in the creek I can’t see the clouds because the cliffs cut them off. And I can’t wait sometimes to get up, especially in the monsoon season. Then I see these tower-of-power clouds. And other times I’m on the top walking along, looking down into these bays, these meadows that have happened through erosion in the creek bed."
