Can you fall in love with your own work?
But sometimes a painting is so close to me that it feels like a part of me – a painting of Rufus could be my knee – it’s impossible to send it to the art-universe without pain.

But to me, pain is a barter trade, a currency which makes me electric. And the idea that paintings with Mari in them are hanging in New York, paintings with Rufus in them are hanging in Los Angeles and paintings with my testicles in them are hanging in Munich and New York – that makes me even more electric.
