"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."
"It was more than a little intimidating to work in the Mies van der Rohe building in Berlin because it is a perfect building. That’s what stymied me for a while. It didn’t need or want any art, and I didn’t want to spoil it in any way. One doesn’t want to make an imperfect mess in a masterpiece."
- Jenny Holzer
