"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 like a modern-day flâneur. I like to walk through the city and find the details and then abstract them and make them my own. I’m not speaking for a community or trying to make a sociopolitical point. It becomes an artwork, but it has these references which I find interesting. At the end it’s my mapping- my subjectivity- and me trying to find those memories and details that point to something that I’m trying to really figure out."
