"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."
"Often I’ve thought I can’t imagine really doing this for my whole life, my whole career. In the late ’80s and ’90s I was experimenting more with gradually taking myself out of the picture, where I was just sort of a reflection in something, or only a part of my face was shown in the shadows."
