Popular culture isn't a freeze-frame; it is images zapping by in rapid-fire succession, which is why collage is such an effective way of representing contemporary life. The blur between images creates a kind of motion in the mind.
I started billboard painting in Minneapolis, and I went to General Outdoor Advertising, and I said, 'I could do that.' They said, 'Oh yeah... we can always use a good man around here.'
I am getting old, so I really don't like clocks.
As a person gets older, time gets more interesting. As a kid, you waste so much of it.
Believe it or not, there were very few books on art, years ago.
I am not in yesterday; I am not in tomorrow. I am right now.
I can handle ups and downs.
I don't do anecdotes. I accumulate experiences.
I feel lucky that I've been able to make a living from painting any idea that comes into my head.
I hate getting old, but I'm sticking with it!
I learned a lot of painting tricks painting outside.
I painted billboards above every candy store in Brooklyn.
I stick the collages on the wall and, if I still like them after a month or two, I make a painting.
I think of my actions every day: what seems to be important and what isn't.
I travel a lot.
