"I make work that doesn’t even have to be talked about on a racial plane. The problem is, particularly in the US, when people find out that I’m the one who made it – it automatically goes into that dialogue. Sometimes I dodge that; sometimes I embrace that. It’s a catch-22. I don’t want to be ghettoized as a black artist. But at the same time, I’m proud to be a black artist."
