“There is a natural joy and humor at seeing the mind’s many images at the same party, talking to each other. I invite everyone I know and try to create a place that is neither sad nor happy, neither ironic nor sober, as weighty as history and as light as sound. In this way, the paintings keep me in an enjoyable state of chaos.”
