"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."
"Romance? It’s just low grade. If left to my devices, it’s not so great. There are a lot of things which are determined by a kind of romantic impulse, but I try to squelch it. The work is a kind of system. Sometimes I do this canceling thing: if it gets too ‘one thing’, I will try to overlay it with another so it doesn’t get too literal, too poetic, too tough, too anything, too red. Cancel it with a little bit of green or get a vibration."
