"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."
"We are trying to tell our story, our cosmology, our way of understanding the world, through our work in the same way as the Renaissance painters who were doing Annunciation and Crucifixion scenes. Each one of them did it differently- just as artists like me and Matthew Ritchie or Alexis Rockman, or any of the other artists who are interested in these kinds of things, will use different languages to tell the same story."
