"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Part of the reason I got interested in using watercolor is that I was interested in painting things that looked like Audubons. They were like fake Audubons, but I twisted the subject matter a bit and got inside his head and tried to paint as if it was really his tortured soul portrayed...as if his hand betrayed him and he painted what he didn’t want to expose about himself."
