"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."
"Maybe it takes rules and structure to define something as an unusual situation. So it really becomes about bending those rules or defining them on your terms. That determines whether it’s art or not, whether it’s a special situation or a mundane situation. It’s about choice."
