"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."
"Anarchy...can definitely happen in a piece of art. I haven’t seen it happen in my work, but it’s possible. I’m setting the rules for there to be anarchy, not in the larger sense but within the confines of the game. You can break the confines of the game. You can stop it, break it up entirely. It’s just a creative possibility- to take something to the extreme- which I think is creatively very interesting.
