"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."
"Drawings and sculpture develop over time. Sculptures go on for months. They tell different kinds of stories, so they’re not so much one moment. They’re a sequence of moments. That works better for the way I’m put together. And I love stuff . . . and I love tools. And I get to get all these things. So I’m always correcting people who say, ‘All those paintings you did. . . .’ They’re not paintings. I know that because, if you know painters, you know when you’re not one."
