“I went through moral conflict.  I could not sleep for a long time in preparation of my new work.  I had to go into the depths of my own sexuality, my own morality, to be able to remove fear, guilt and shame from myself.  All fo this has been removed for the viewer.  So when the viewer sees it, they are in the realm of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.” – Jeff Koons
