"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."
"In 'Seascapes,' my subject matter is water and air. Stillness...I’m not intentionally promoting it, but most people see it, and it’s very quiet and serene. That’s something that just naturally, automatically comes out through my work."
- Hiroshi Sugimoto
