"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."
"A lot of the pieces that I do- these single pieces- they’re comments on the larger work that I’m working with or whatever the subject matter happens to be at that point. So they’re very short comments- marginalia- and I have many, many short comments. My work is full of marginalia."
- Ida Applebroog
