"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."
"All my work, even the most formal work, has an underlying politics to it. But I don’t want to reveal my position. The moment I reveal my position is the moment that I think art is about telling you something that I know and that you should know it. I’m more interested in thinking about something, arriving at a position I will take towards it, and creating moments in which people have the possibility to think about something similar and take a position."
