"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."
"Mine are definitely not utilitarian objects. But I learn from them. I learn from that which is vernacular. I love things that I use- like the tarika- which is the washboard- or bowls, wooden spoons, big pots. They’re all very primitive, very crude . . ."
