"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."
"Catholicism continues on in the work. I have a tremendous love for the spiritual part of life. The drip as an icon ... bleeding people wearing crowns of thorns. I did a painting based on the martyrdom of St. Sebastian. It’s called Rosebud (1983)."
