I think about my work every minute of the day.
When people make judgments they close all the possibility around them.
Art is about profundity. It's about connecting to everything that it means to be alive, but you have to act.
I've always enjoyed feeling a connection to the avant-garde, such as Dada and surrealism and pop art. The only thing the artist can do is be honest with themselves and make the art they want to make. That's what I've always done.
I love the gallery, the arena of representation. It's a commercial world, and morality is based generally around economics, and that's taking place in the art gallery.
Art to me is a humanitarian act and I believe that there is a responsibility that art should somehow be able to effect mankind, to make the word a better place.
If I try to articulate every little detail in a drawing, it would be like missing the forest for the trees, so it's just about getting the outline of the forest.
Pretty mundane closet, but a lot of ties. And I tend not to throw anything out, so I have a lot of clothes from all times from my life. I can be a little sentimental with things like that.
I believe that my art gets across the point that I'm in this morality theater trying to help the underdog, and I'm speaking socially here, showing concern and making psychological and philosophical statements for the underdog.
I like to look at everything and appreciate seeing the different things that have meaning to people.
Art helped give me confidence.
Whenever you finish an artwork and the viewer comes and views it, at that moment you've given up control.
Art has this ability to allow you to connect back through history in the same way that biology does. I'm always looking for source material.
Every day I wake up and I really try to pinch myself to take advantage of today and to use that freedom of gesture to do what I really like to do.
I don't believe that artists really are interested in money. That's not the motivation for art.
