"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."
"There’s a very clear relationship between my work and the history of that work, or the Constructivists or Italian Futurists in certain ways. But in terms of what I’m interested in painting, I can go after a painter—one part of a person’s painting—and not necessarily his or her whole work."
