"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’m an artist, and my work is not just about illustrating something; it’s also about engaging the senses. And so once people have a look and they’re sympathetic to the work, then they might start to think, “What is he doing? What’s the work about?”
