"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."
"I’ve been very involved in not having a signature material. I think there is a signature style. It’s like handwriting. And I have a feeling that anybody who’s seen much of my work would probably recognize it as mine. But I don’t use the same materials. I like having different kinds of input coming in. When I first came to New York, I had no money, obviously (no one had any money). And I had the year of aluminum foil. I did the year of little tiny wire structures. And then I would get a router or a tool and it was the year of the router, the year of the jigsaw."
