“I take comfort in histories and knowing that something came before me and something will come after me and that I’m just part of it. Sometimes students will say, ‘Well, it’s all been done.’ But I think, who cares? What does that have to do with anything? I wouldn’t be painting if I cared about that. Okay it’s all been done, so what? You have to figure out how to do it for you.”
