Artists often collect. Sometimes compulsively. They hang on to things. They don't want to let go. Like paintings. I don't want to part with them. Some I won't sell at any price. I don't even let people see ‘em. - We don't like change, and we're possesive. Maybe that's why we do it. We want to hang on to things, hang on to the one time. We don't want to let it go; we want to capture it and keep it forever. Or one person. How she was then. At that moment. That's what I want - to stop time, to have that power."
