"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."
"I wanted this to feel as though one could approach the work psychologically. One could also approach it physically. But they would both sort of blend. I think that one could almost see with one's hands, as well, when one feels it."
—Ursula von Rydingsvard
