"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."
"That has become a very important part of my work life—looking at diptychs made with a photograph and an abstract image. Ideas are put together almost in a linguistic way. I imagine images and think a lot, and the process is very similar to how it is when I write."
