"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."
"I’m very interested in how I map something, how I enter it—literally the porthole through which I can enter into the space of making the work. What does it need to have? What does it need to feel like? Conceptually, what is it trying to do?"
