"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."
"I wouldn't say that I never think about beauty as an aesthetic issue. But I certainly think it's a much more complicated issue then it's imagined to be. I think sometimes when people think of beauty they think of prettiness as a sign of beauty, but it's a lot more complicated and a lot deeper than that."
