"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 wanted to create an environment that had something to do with trade, with public space, and the way people use it for pleasure, for business, for meetings, for secrets. I like that. And this was the amalgamation of all that put together. I wanted to create the feeling of being outdoors and indoors at the same time- those little passageways, alleyways, or narrow spaces between buildings that people turn into private places to talk and gather in."
