“How do you get into the flow of painting?”

“You have to become like an animal, a painting animal.”

“I’m waiting to die. I’m on a path to death. But death is too abstract an idea for me to deal with. Maybe it’s because I’m not a conceptual artist that the idea of death doesn’t exist for me!”

“I don’t care if fifty-thousand people are looking at my pictures online or if one person is looking – I would still be painting.”

“Your whole life is one big sausage, and each painting you make is one slice of that sausage.”
