"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."
"As an atheist, I am attracted to religious art because it usually represents a hyperbolic moment like the suffering or martyrdom of a saint or...a dramatic moment in the life of Christ and a shocking image of a tortured physical body. So I look at a religious image through a secular lens."
