Catalogue Note

"I'll see something in an artist's work that is really a minor, minor part of the artwork—like a shadow on someone's face from a hat, and I'll think, 'Oh, my God, that's the best thing!' And I'll turn that element into a painting. Instead of looking at the art, the totality of the artwork, and taking that in and using it, I'll take little pieces, and I think of that as a more personal and interpretive quality that's coming from within."
