"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"In the Helga pictures I set out to create a total portrait of a young man using Andrew Wyeth’s Helga paintings as a template to explore how one defines someone in images using a description of femininity to describe a man, so that you start to wonder with the Wyeth portraits whether it is a feminine pose or an artist’s pose. Is it Wyeth’s pose, is it Helga’s pose?"
