"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."
"Something that really comes out in my work, or I hope comes out in my work, is trying to infuse the intimidating back into the spiritual. Spirituality should be intimidating. It really should. Because people have no business being on a buddy-buddy basis with God. I think that's just really stupid."
