"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."
"I am doing the kind of research that legitimate natural history artists do, but I do it in a very lazy way compared to them. I don’t want to ever pretend that I’m like one of those guys. There is another level to this sort of natural history-art thing that actually doesn’t interest me, but I do a kind of imitation of it."
