"My imagination is limited and my ideas are vague. But I want to make paintings that are thorough - brought to a finish (and hopefully a finish that resonates with experience, that reveals the contradictory and unsettling nature and complexity of the commonplace). I think any subject is potentially unsettling, but I choose familiar ones (my face, my clothes, the stuff in my studio) because I can evaluate them easily. They are legible. I have studied them, and I know what I do and don't like about them. I can transform them, dissect them, simplify them, and destroy them with confidence. They provide criteria for proceeding with a painting, and that criteria is based on years of observation and consideration. This is the best way I know." Goldman 2009
