"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."
"More than anything, I was accorded complete centrality as a young boy- but as a young kind of feminine boy that was given complete and uncensored expression. Whatever kind of predilection or whim I would exhibit there was just simply no raised eyebrow. I think that might have set the stage...I don’t know if there were specific memories that, as I look back on them, might have indicated that I would become an artist. But that precondition of allowing me as a young boy to express a fey side was given full rein and never ever commented on."
