Some people are better at handling the limelight than others.
I don’t collect books just because other people collect them, and I’m not going to have books in my collection if I think it’s badly written.
It’s interesting how people who were once fairly radical can become, later in life, kind of conservative, and not just in terms of politics – how, if you’re an artist, you can start out being somewhat avant-garde and then end up doing landscapes.
Making art has never been a mystery to me. It’s never been something that’s very difficult.
In a way, I pattern myself after all the bands I used to like as a kid. Every time they put out LPs, they had a whole new look and a new sound.
Sometimes when I walk into a gallery and I see someone’s work, I think to myself, ‘Gee, I wish I had done that.’
My studio is the only place I feel good in. There, I’m fearless; outside, I’m a mess.
I love deliberately badly written books.
I have no fear of changing looks.
