"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."
"I guess I just want a lot of the work to be seen as funny as much as it is horrific. Even when I was doing shots using fake blood and dead body characters in the fairytales, I still wanted to seem humorous—perhaps because the real thing is so much worse."
