"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."
"Obviously it was impossible for me to consciously think that I was going to be an artist because I’d never heard of anything like an artist until I came to the United States. I just know that I feel like I drank from the world through visual means- that that was a huge source of the information by which I lived."
