"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 suppose the first promptings or proddings to work as an artist are still there and the questions haven’t changed. One does the work and then tries to formulate a series of questions which one could possibly ask as a reason for the work. So it’s always reverse engineering in terms of the ideas."
