"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."
"’Le Baiser’ is about love, but it’s a restrained love. It’s like looking at work by Donald Judd and drooling- hating the fact that you’re drooling...It’s a relationship artists in my generation have had with particular forms of modernity, whether some people call it reductive minimalism or just minimalism, and wanting to throw content back into that...it’s also about the most interesting part of love- about desire- at that moment when there’s something between you and the object."
