"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 was getting tired of hearing the complaint, "My kid could do this," and "We don’t get it. What’s modern art? Blah, blah, blah." And I wondered what would really happen if you gave people what they wanted, something they always look at."
