"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."
"I was coming down the scenic route, looking at La Jolla, and there she was. The town was laid out on this incredible bay...like Pompeii, which isn’t exactly on a bay, but it’s filled with these beautiful, affluent people living the good life on the brink of annihilation. And in California we are slipping into the sea, eroding into the sea...living on earthquake faults."
- Eleanor Antin
