"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."
"My work has to do to a large extent with the nature of public address and public assembly as a way to get at something about social engagement which is abstract and doesn’t have to do with speech but, rather, with the combination of a lot of different phenomena. It has often been discussed in terms of body language or gesture. I think it’s actually a much more complicated series of issues, but it all boils down to public assembly, public address, public engagement, and interlocution."
