«What I’m trying to do with each canvas is create a situation in which the paint can be itself, which means letting go of any rationalization. It’s important to let ideas blossom without too much judging or interference. The beauty of children is their ability to look at the world openly, without being bound by the intellect. Your intellect can hold back so many wonderful, fantastic things. Without logic or reason, there’s always something else, something unseen. The world is infinite rather than finite»

«I never end up with what I set out to do. Whether it’s a film or a painting, I always start with a script, but I don’t ever follow it all the way through to the end. A lot more happens when you open yourself up to the work and let yourself act and react to it. Every work ‘talks’ to you, and if you listen to it, it will take you places you never dreamed of. It’s this interaction that makes the work richer»

«One of the reasons I prefer painting in black and white, or almost in black and white, is that if you have some shadow or darkness in the frame, then your mind can travel in there and dream. In general, color is a little too real. It’s too close. It doesn’t make you dream much. If everything is visible, and there’s too much light, the thing is what it is, but it isn’t any more than that»

«I hate slick and pretty things. I prefer mistakes and accidents. Which is why I like things like cuts and bruises — they’re like little flowers. I’ve always said that if you have a name for something, like ‘cut’ or ‘bruise,’ people will automatically be disturbed by it. But when you see the same thing in nature, and you don’t know what it is, it can be very beautiful»
