A few quotes from that interview:
"Artists can be the leaders and peacemakers of the world."
"Epiphany takes place, even in ground zero. It's the responsibility of the poet (painter/ musician/etc.) to respond and be open to that epiphanic experience."
"Reconciliation is not possible. But God calls us to it, and it happens through generations."
"Each painting is a sort of confessional to me--usually dealing with issues that I'm dealing with spiritually. My heart becomes transparent."
