"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’d like to document what’s glorious in the West and remains glorious, despite what we’ve done to it. I’d like to be very truthful about that. But I also want to show what is disturbing and what needs correction. The best way to do that- and it’s the way every artist dreams of- is to show it at the same time in the very same rectangle. You’re always in quest for the picture which will catch both, and occasionally that happens."
