"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 don’t know at what point I would have discovered them, but Goya and Duchamp are probably my favorites. It’s Goya’s use of grotesqueness, making things horrific seem comical (but still horrific and poignant), and the ability to be recording, much less living through, those events but balancing that with his own version of society portraiture."
