"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"As an artist, it’s very important to respond to the things that affect you- millions of things: religion, people, animals, excess, violence. Each person has to respond differently, and that response is involved with ethics, morality, history. This is, in the most basic sense, responsibility. But what does it mean to respond, take all this research, and find a form for it? Is there a way that any work of art can accommodate all of the material that is generated in the process of research?"
