"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."
"There are certain recurring interests in my work and...ways of looking at things, maybe having to do with the way I get ideas and the way ideas are formed...really obvious categories. The first thing that I think of is the human form and using my own body as the reference point, ways of depicting and referring to that, and ‘re-looking’ at that through different eyes."
