You basically only discover a new thing once.
I love seeing tattoos on 60-year-olds who have had them for 40 years.
I think when tattoos are new and colorful, they look bad. But they look better the older and more bleached out they become.
I think it's bad for human beings to be artists. It's awful. You want to do something but you're constantly trying to decide what you want to do. Let's just say it's no place like Hawaii.
Life is one long decay, no? There's a lot of beauty in it. Like the patina in an old city.
Many artists who don't go off to art school come to New York. It's about what you learn when you're here.
What is the art world? I never really understood. I started doing this stuff to do what I want to do. Not to be this or that.
If you don't enjoy making work, then it's bad. It's rough. Artwork is brutal for so many people. They let it happen to them, but it's brutal. I like the idea of an artist as somebody who works. A lot of the artists I like share this understanding.
I always have a lot of things going on because some things take years to make and others take five minutes. I like that there's always something going on. Working doesn't have such a momentous feel - like it's all or nothing.
Take a relief. You draw it, you carve it out. Later you build it up from a flat surface. There is no other way to do a sculpture - you either add or you subtract.
