"Empathy is everything! I talk a lot about this in my writing on art, and in my teaching, too. Often I frame the notion of empathy, and more, of compassion, in terms of generosity. Basically, through my work to this point, I've seen that art isn’t art if it’s not in the service of others. I’m here to give, first, and then, only after I've given, to take what others have to give, so that both giving and taking amount in the end to an ongoing act of generosity."
