"I think generally people accept to speak when the question you ask them is not a question they have learned in their life to answer yes or no. So if I ask you if you would please help me carry my suitcase and move my apartment you can say no because you have something else to do, you'd rather change your own apartment. But if I ask you if you would please sleep in my bed, instead of saying no, you say, 'Why not?'"

"So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are."
