"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."
"Oddly enough, I think influential on me is the landscape itself in southeastern Ohio...It's incredibly hilly right where I grew up and the landscape undulates beautifully. And you really do have a sense always of that ground plain rising up and rolling. It's the rolling hills- they're quite luscious and quite beautiful."
- Maya Lin
