    Why do you write?

    I'm trying to express a wide world in a short space.

    Literature and art have always been a part of my life, and so they have been milk as well as blood. In my writing, as in my artwork, I try to explore ideas around the creation of the self as a constantly evolving sexual, moral, and emotional aspect of consciousness. The fragmentation, juxtaposition of experience, and the structural aspects of collage are evident in many of my works, both visual and written. The body and its mysteries continue to be a catalyst for many of my works.
