"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."
"Sometimes I get inspiration for a painting from how you glaze ceramics. When you glaze a pot, you pour some liquid glaze into it and then let it run down, back into a bucket, so the flow of the glaze makes the image. The image is the drip and the pour, so it’s just like in a pot."
