"Going back to the forest metaphor, to burn it down so that you nourish the soil. Yeah, it takes tremendous courage to do things you don't do well. I feel like I have to analyze everything and run it through so many filters and processes before I actually let it out into the world." -RP
"We first became acquainted with Roxy Paine’s work in the late ’90s and were instantly attracted to its rigor, intensity, and beauty. In following his work, we became intrigued by how it kept changing from project to project: what could possibly tie together perfect replicas of mushrooms and weed-choked vegetable gardens, showcases with astonishing varieties of Sculpey brushstroke specimens, machine-made abstract paintings, and stainless-steel boulders? Paine pursues each project with a deep intelligence—one that draws us in and changes our conception of our relationship to nature."
—Tod Williams, Billie Tsien, Bomb magazine, 2009
