"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."
"Even though I have a certain engagement with science, there are a lot of tools that the artist has that the scientist doesn’t. So I can use these tools- humor, irony, metaphor- these are the bread and butter of artists. What artists can really add to a particular kind of struggle is that we have this expanded tool bag."
