"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"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."
