"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Uccello did this drawing of a chalice in a perspective showing a three-dimensional object on a two-dimensional plane. And I thought I would re-draw it. This is a soft ground, a copper plate that has a soft ground. When you put a paper down and press on it, it leaves a kind of fuzzy line. Because I was really, in a way, mimicking the drawing that Uccello had done...not really the drawing, but the reproduction of the drawing as I found it in the book, this is another instance where two images are kind of hanging onto each other."
