"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."
"A lot of my work comes from an interest in how things are made and how things are done. And the way materials are manipulated and used...and the whole history of that in mankind’s past...and the language that develops around the way materials are used that has a life of its own."
