But most people don't come up to me and express a lot of emotion.
I think young people have a wonderful reaction to color because it's not screwed up by too many references.
I was feeling a strong need to change, grow, and break with particular things that were going on in my life and my history, and the material was the perfect answer for that.
When I make art, I think about its ability to connect with others, to bring them into the process.
I move very slowly. It's usually material first. I sit with the material for a long time.
Color is an intense experience on its own.
My latest works are these things with light bulbs.
As a viewer, my own work elicits strong emotional reaction from me.
However, some of my work is very subtle, and one should expect very subtle reactions to it.
I was trying to write an autobiography using prints and patterns that reference emotional, psychological, and personal development in my work, as a person growing up, figuring out who I was. I used fabrics to stand in for occurrences.
I work from a personal place, and the work has personal meaning for me.
Often, I work out of my work. One work takes me to the next thing.
There is a broad range of reaction to the work, as there is a broad range of work I make.
I think that some works are more accessible than others.
