"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 figuring-out-what-to-make time is spent doing some basic counting and measuring and
trying to figure out how big different elements of a piece should be. I could spend days obsessively thinking about three inches, two inches, six inches. It’s very much a mental exercise."
