    “In the beginning I didn’t want it to be. It was this rebellious gesture to do the Pollocks, to destabalize the idolatry. And now it’s all been consumed, which is good because I always thought you couldn’t cause change from without, you had to be in the system to cause change. So maybe it’s all working in a way— for this minute—(laughs) Tomorrow is gonna be another story. But it’s still important that the work be controversial, something to do with freeing myself from the bondage of their tyranny.”
    Mike Bidlo taken from an interview with Anna Bonney, Bomb Magazine, BOMB 45, Fall 1993
