"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."
"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."
