"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’m always interested in things that we don’t call art—and I have to say, "Well why not? What can I do to this to make it art? How can I change people’s minds?" I would like people to say, "You can’t do that." I love it that all of a sudden because I’ve said it’s art, somebody believes me."
