“I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”

 

“I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling.”


“There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.”

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”

 

I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.” 

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”

 

“My painting carries with it the message of pain.”
