"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 wanted to work in stone. The idea of permanence was important to me. It was a puzzle to find the site that felt right to work in. And then once I found the site that felt right, having an idea that seemed to nestle into the site...I wanted to do something that was like a folly, like an architectural folly."
