Some people are better at handling the limelight than others.
I have no fear of changing looks.
I love deliberately badly written books.
My studio is the only place I feel good in. There, I'm fearless; outside, I'm a mess.
Sometimes when I walk into a gallery and I see someone's work, I think to myself, 'Gee, I wish I had done that.'
In a way, I pattern myself after all the bands I used to like as a kid. Every time they put out LPs, they had a whole new look and a new sound.
Making art has never been a mystery to me. It's never been something that's very difficult.
It's interesting how people who were once fairly radical can become, later in life, kind of conservative, and not just in terms of politics - how, if you're an artist, you can start out being somewhat avant-garde and then end up doing landscapes.
I don't collect books just because other people collect them, and I'm not going to have books in my collection if I think it's badly written.
