"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."
"I’m also working on more fragmented pieces- of body parts that sprout from mounds, that have on tube socks or sneakers. They’re not obviously attached to any body that we would recognize as a body. I’m also still very interested in looking at those structures and that way of dealing with the figure as part of this larger conglomerate."
