"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 a secular person. I don’t believe in any kind of mystical mumbo-jumbo. For me and for a number of artists today, science really functions as our world view. I don’t see that as terribly different from the way artists used the Church in the past. Our relationship to science is very much like the Renaissance artists’ relationship to theology."
