"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."
"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
