"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"I love Queen Elizabeth...Here’s this woman called 'Queen'- she gives that little wave- and she has no power whatsoever. In 'Emetic Fields,' there is the figure of Queen Elizabeth and there is the figure of a surgeon. And that all goes back to my own sense of how power works. Queen Elizabeth, to me, is the epitome of how power works. Not too well."
- Ida Applebroog
