"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 think the artworks are icons. I haven’t used the word ‘iconography’ about it, but I’ve got my vanishing points, my palettes, my surfing-on-acid period. So each thing almost works as an icon or maybe an ideograph— as one idea that has resonance and makes you have thoughts about other ideas."
