"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."
"There’s something bizarre about people doing active things if they don’t have heads—a kind of gallows humor, a joke about the French Revolution when the aristocracy had their heads guillotined. It’s also a device that manages to make the pieces post-racial."
