“I don’t think of myself as making art. I do what I do because I want to, because painting is the best way I’ve found to get along with myself.”

“You can’t make either life or art, you have to work in the hole in between, which is undefined. That’s what makes the adventure of painting.”

“An empty canvas is full only if you want it to be full.”

“People ask me, ‘Don’t you ever run out of ideas?’ In the first place I don’t use ideas. Every time I have an idea it’s too limiting, and usually turns out to be a disappointment. But I haven’t run out of curiosity.”

“There’s a moment for everyone when you fall into your own shadow and the fact is that it’s your shadow and you’re forced to live in it. And this is nothing to celebrate or not celebrate. It simply is.”
