"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 not interested in the virtual; I’m interested in the actual. I like to be in places and work with things to create a situation that is experiential. I don’t want people to see my work only through representations, through images. I want them to be able to move through the spaces. It’s important that things have a texture, a smell, a feeling . . . something that you can never capture from a photograph."
