Vision and memory. Experience and imagination. Secrets. Confessions. Regrets. Identity. Introspection. Insurgency of the self. All insistent elements of those artists, musicians, writers, poets who live and create on the edge, always pushing at boundaries personal and creative. Speaking of things too long left unspoken: when secrets transform into poisonous taboos. Same sex love. Alcoholism. Violence. Incest. Abortion. Desires. Obsessions. The fertile ground of the outsider artist, the underground writer, brave and courageous enough to mine the dark, deep wells of the self, society, culture and return with beautiful, sometimes terrible glimpses of what is there. The stories we tell. The stories we are. Our narratives.
