“People always think that their paintings are defined by style. Style is a collection of your personal clichés, which don’t get you anywhere. Fashion designers need clichés because they need to have recognizable things. We actually need to have a direct connection between what you have inside and your painting. The moment something does not answer that need, you just discard it… It keeps things alive and dangerous, and that’s interesting.” –
