"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"Since there is no direction- usually no title- you’re basically looking at this with your baggage of intellectual knowledge and your memories, desires and emotional life, all combined. So you make your own collage and then you bring it to the piece. You juxtapose yourself- attach yourself- to the image and then a new thing is created. You are fragmented, and the piece comes from fragmentation."
