"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."
"Some of the same characters appear in the grids of the ‘Deluxe’ prints as well as the paintings. One thing that the works have in common is that I think of them as built paintings. There’s very little paint ever in the work, but they feel very built."
