"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 was thinking about Bush or the Queen or bin Laden. In one way, they’re real; in another way, I kept thinking of them like Mickey Mouse or Santa Claus, like media characters or some sort of fabrication. But on the other hand, they were not fabrications at all."
