"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."
"When I did ‘Black Kites,’ I was interested in how we perceive volume, how we perceive tri-dimensionality. I am interested in the pattern in the grid and how we perceive truth, always through filters of light, darkness, or many other things. It’s not a pure vision; it’s always there in layers- cultural and physical layers. I was just trying to impose a homogeneous pattern on a very complex tri-dimensional object- a human cranium."
