"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."
"I think there are some artists for whom it doesn’t matter where they are. Their work is so embedded inside their heads that it’s not informed by all of this other stuff. I’m a very private, internal artist. When I work, even with assistants in the studio, I have my headphones on and I try to get lost."
