"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 have over five hundred images in my art at this point to choose from, to re-use. Originally, the images were mostly from art books. And a lot came from magazines, contemporary media. Ancient art has influenced me, and I’ve taken great liberties in using the format of the Egyptian papyrus and writing, and the imagery of the ancient Greeks."
