"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 really love printmaking. To me, it’s endlessly fascinating. The thing that I like the most is doing hard grounds and working with needles, because the needle is always the same size. So I think I got into this thing of scratching, which is just like obsessive, repetitive motion. But it can mimic hair. And you just work really slowly; you build things up very slowly."
