"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"Suffering and beauty are not antithetical, but actually complementary. It isn’t about morbidity. It’s actually a cultural mindset that is predisposed to aestheticizing even pain and suffering. It’s not seen as decadent. It’s just about a duality of things."
