I love women, but actually I don't love women, I just think about them all of the time. I love to look at women; they stimulate my imagination and not just in a sexual way. I used to love watching women hobbling in their new shoes down Fourteenth Street. I saw myself in them. I get a perspective on myself when looking at a woman, her beauty, her ugliness, her failures.

Strangely enough, if you don't show women in a flattering sexualized manner, it's seen as sexist. And if you do, that's sexist too. That was the wonderfully, delightfully ironic point....There was an opportunity to make provocative paintings that don't look like provocative paintings.
