Gonzalez-Torres on portraits and events

“I start a portrait by asking the person to give me a list of important events in his or her life – intensively personal moments which outsiders have very little knowledge of or insight into. Then I add some relevant historical events that, in more ways than one, have probably altered the course of and the possibility for those supposedly private or personal events.”
