"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."
"Certain works have a timeless quality. I think there are two ways to enter the eternal or to have a dialogue with the eternal. One deals with history. Connecting to human history there’s a sense of the ephemeral and ethereal, a kind of spiritual abstraction of thought."
