"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."
"Art happens in that space between the spectator...and the work. It’s that space in between that finalizes the work of art. And in the case of the terra-cotta works, they are especially artistic- on the one hand very artistic, on the other...very hermetic."
- Gabriel Orozco
