"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."
"One of the reasons the exhibition, Constructing History: A Requiem to Mark the Moment (2008), came about was in actually dealing with the issue of appropriation. I didn’t want to have to appropriate anybody’s material; I just wanted to revisit this history."
