"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."
"Absolutely nothing is escapable in that realm of light, and everything is there to be analyzed and examined. These are ideas that have been very, very interesting to me, and I think about them often. I think about the way that Brecht uses light. I think about the way DeCarava uses light. I think about the way that Beckett thinks about light."
