"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"Wall Chart of World History from Earliest Times to the Present," detail (1997)
"There was ‘The Wall Chart of World History...’ and I think the reference to history came after making this drawing and seeing it as kind of a time line because it has this feeling of different events being portrayed, one taking over another. It was a long red drawing and it looked like it was a spirograph drawing. It had a real biomorphic quality, almost like it was composed of intestines or something."
