"I’m just always thinking about Manet’s labor.  He executed a certain amount of labor in the front of a canvas with some certain dimensions, and that I’m exercising  a certain kind of labor, and it is parallel, but it results in a different kind of image.  It may be abstract, but I’m of the generation that thinks that our abstraction isn’t a component of the representational."
