"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."
"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."
