Art to me is a humanitarian act and I believe that there is a responsibility that art should somehow be able to effect mankind, to make the word a better place.

I believe in advertisement and media completely. My art and my personal life are based in it. I think that the art world would probably be a tremendous reservoir for everybody involved in advertising.

I believe that my art gets across the point that I'm in this morality theater trying to help the underdog, and I'm speaking socially here, showing concern and making psychological and philosophical statements for the underdog.

I love the gallery, the arena of representation. It's a commercial world, and morality is based generally around economics, and that's taking place in the art gallery.

I think about my work every minute of the day.

I try to be a truthful artist and I try to show a level of courage. I enjoy that. I'm a messenger.

I would prefer a normal-sized breast, or a small breast or whatever and that it be natural, than to understand that it was just some jelly in there.

I'm always trying to create work that doesn't make viewers feel they're being spoken down to, so that they feel open participation.

I'm basically the idea person. I'm not physically involved in the production. I don't have the necessary abilities, so I go to the top people.
