"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"I hope that my paintings can be emotional moments for people. In the paintings where there’s tenderness I work for it. I’m not afraid of it. And I care very much about what I care about- and when I choose to. And there’s not that many tender moments that can bring up that response in me."
