"The creation of the art is a release of energy. Just like an emotion. But a lot of people are not comfortable with the release of emotion. Our culture has a lot of rules against it. But somehow, the subconscious mind can release energy and emotion through this act of art making. And it builds community when people do it altogether. They become bonded, somehow. ... I can't explain it, but it's a healing force in that way."
Thoughts on Themes
"I don't really like to work with themes at all. I just make things. When I make a painting, I have no idea of what I'm going to make a painting of, and I like to work that way. But I've noticed that it's not in tune with the modern world because what makes people interested in art is the concept. I have no concept, I'm just working with emotion and intuition."
"I want to do work about stereotypes, but not in a boring way. I want to take items that are associated with stereotypes. ... you could build a girly girl sculpture with sparkly and pink things and hair brushes. I think it would be fun and interesting."
