"I’ve always done artwork in series.  And in doing them in series, one image suggests another.  I am simply the person who gives them form, some kind of reality, some kind of material sense, so that I can share them with someone else.  Once you start with something that interests you, it generates its own momentum; it makes itself.

I don’t look for ideas.  People talk about going on the Internet and getting information.  I have always thought that the information that interests me the most is the information that I am in contact with in just me daily routine.  It is first-hand experience; it’s not second-hand information."
