"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."
"Theatricality is central to my work. I use theatrical devices because I want people to enter a different world, a fantasy world. For me that’s what art is. It’s that world you can enter that’s different from your regular, everyday world."
