"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"I gave up painting. In my quest for clarity, I decided that I was going to do everything with just a pencil. You call them drawings; I don’t even call them drawings...I don’t even call them things. They are like areas that are made- concentrated on- thoroughly considered."
