"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 wanted to do a body of work that focused on the garbage and pieces of paper and scraps of canvas I had lying around on my studio floor, and where those scraps could ultimately lead me. What they led to was a body of work that at first glance seems disjointed- as if each element has nothing to do with the next. But on further scrutiny, you realize that it’s all interconnected."
