"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 were these very real things that caused me to reevaluate what's worthy of my time in the studio when time is such a limited thing. I don't know how these things cosmically line up, but that tile was revealed to me at the exact right time. I was looking for a new ground to stand on and I found it in this tile—so that pattern is a truth."
