"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."
"One of the underlying interests of my work is to equate the experience of it with the content. That’s kind of a leveling of a difference between conceptual and formal. I use both those languages as essential parts of a whole. By formal, I don’t mean stripes and squares- I mean how a thing exists in the world. And that’s really important to me in terms of how a work relates itself to what is out there, whether it’s the room or the person in front of it, or the circumstances more broadly. The formal aspect is a very small part of the palette."
