"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."
"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."
