"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."
"There are certain recurring interests in my work and...ways of looking at things, maybe having to do with the way I get ideas and the way ideas are formed...really obvious categories. The first thing that I think of is the human form and using my own body as the reference point, ways of depicting and referring to that, and ‘re-looking’ at that through different eyes."
