"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."
"I’m always allergic to problem-solving because I just think it’s so Puritan. And maybe that’s a cultural thing for me. I’ve come to understand and internalize the spectator’s appraisal of the work. And one of the things that I’m ambivalent about, but don’t totally discard, is the fact that the work might seem a lot more constructed and pre-planned than it actually is."
