A collection makes its own demands. Many artists have been collectors. I think of it rather as an illness. I felt it was using up too much energy.

I once was interviewed and got so exasperated that I said, 'What do you want, a shopping list?' They kept asking, 'What's in this picture?'

I think that words are often extraneous to what I do.

I think words come between the spectator and the picture.

I want my pictures to be things. I want them to be made up of marks that are physically and individually self-sufficient.

I'm very envious of the few artists who are any good and still do portraits.
