JM: When you redraw images, you often leave out elements that would point to a specific person. Do you do this to let your materials speak or direct a viewer away from the original sources?
JL: Since the work is not about likeness, I can use paint less predictably. I try to use materials in such a way as to make them refer to something else. If I wanted something that looks like a highlighter, I would not use a highlighter. I would rather resize or transform another material to give the appearance of a highlighter.
