"Drawing is very central to the way that I work because it can be blown up, taken apart.... You can just keep on pushing it, like this infinite machine...."
"I always want to refer to the fact that my work is artificial; it is artifice. It is art, made as art; it is not unmediated reality. It is mediated reality through form, and form is artifice. What I really like in a work of art is for the formal strategy to be part of the meaning of the work."
