"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."
"When I think about an artwork, in its totality from the beginning, usually I’m thinking about certain ideas, a narrative, or a notion. I don’t really start making artwork until I can figure out what it looks like for the person coming upon it for the first time. How do you enter it? How do you allow somebody to come into it?"
