Interview Excerpt, 1/2017:

S: Explain again, why rabbits?

O: Oh, you know. People, Americans, they’re like sad rabbits. They just react — run away — in the same direction, procreate. Helpless like rabbits — no voice.

S: No voice? We hear tons of voice.

O: Sure. But don’t mistake text for speech. By the way, how do you like my cadmium red? Thinking of Philip Guston.

S: What’s next?

O: Ask the rabbit.
