"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 made ‘Born,’ a Genevieve being born of a deer. And I also have no idea where that came from. You can say that it relates to different mythological stories or something. Sometimes I’m making things and people will say, ‘Oh, that’s Diana; oh, that’s Daphne.’ But I don’t know. It just pops into my head."
