"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."
"The Vessel, there is something almost religious about it. The way it’s radiating feels almost Catholic in some way. I can see it going in that direction, the idea of a center of energy and irradiation of that energy and the body. Something that wasn’t as clear before in my work."
—David Altmejd in Boundaries (2012)
