"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"The drawing process is extremely important for the paintings. The paintings
are very controlled; the drawings are when I actually come up with the material
for the paintings. So there are no paintings without the drawings, but they’re very different from each other. Sometimes it looks like two different people have done them."
