"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"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."
