“As an artist, I never want to stop experimenting. Every time I do a piece, I want to either add something new or learn something. I think great art can be born in moments of madness, compulsion and impulsiveness. In my day-to-day life, focusing is often a futile exercise. When I’m painting, I can go 24 hours without stopping to eat, drink, or rest because my brain achieves a level of ecstasy in the process that everything else becomes irrelevant. If my studio burned down while I was working, I would probably be the last to know.”
