"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."
"Louis was a symbol of what happens to art under a monarch (whoever controls it, it will eventually reflect his or her ego and simply become decorative). Puppy (1992) is a large floral sculpture made out of 60,000large flowers. I conceived that piece really thinking that it would be the type of work that Louis would have the fantasy for."
