"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"I am doing the kind of research that legitimate natural history artists do, but I do it in a very lazy way compared to them. I don’t want to ever pretend that I’m like one of those guys. There is another level to this sort of natural history-art thing that actually doesn’t interest me, but I do a kind of imitation of it."
