"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I have two sides: creativity and the architecture. It's got ideas about framing the landscape, being ecologically and environmentally sensitive, not that a lot of the artworks aren't using recycled materials and about nature in another way. But formally, I liked that they're different, that I don't want my architecture looking like my sculptures and I don't want the sculptures being at all architectonic in their form."
- Maya Lin
