"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."
"The drawings are painterly except they’re not on stretched canvas. I know they’re not paintings because paintings make me a little ill, when I make them, because I start doing this push-pull thing, this here-there thing. I’m haunted by all of the rhetoric of painting. Elizabeth Murray is a real painter- such a painter! Her paintings are hard work. They’re emotional. They’re direct. She’s not embarrassed. She is there when she paints. She keeps in touch with her life."
