"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."
"It's not just about using form to illustrate something. It’s about the meaning also being held in the form that illustrates something. Beauty is part of the form, but beauty is also emotional. So it’s actually form and content. And those two things work together or express each other."
