"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 think working in steel mills gave me a whole notion of how to use steel in a way that it hadn't been used before...I could use it in a way that it hadn't been used in sculpture up to that point. So I had a certain freedom to move right in to it, and use it in ways that the Industrial Revolution had used it."
- Richard Serra
