"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"I even have an outfit, a Torpedoboy outfit that I wear while I’m painting. In a way, it’s as if when I go into the studio I have to get into character. Torpedoboy’s uniform is pink and yellow, one of the most obnoxious color combinations that I could think of. It’s very loud, and that’s what he’s all about. His ego is his force field. That’s just how he takes on the world."
