"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."
"It's not just about using form to illustrate something. It’s about the meaning also being held in the form that illustrates something. Beauty is part of the form, but beauty is also emotional. So it’s actually form and content. And those two things work together or express each other."
