"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."
"It’s a resurrection/birth story; ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ is a kind of resurrection/birth myth. And then I thought it was like Venus on the half shell or like the Virgin on the moon. It’s the same form- a large horizontal form and a vertical coming out of it."
