"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."
"The fabrics—they’re not just textiles. They’re tactile things but there is historical content there, so it then becomes difficult to separate what something looks like and what it expresses. They are linked. And that’s very much where meaning creates form."
