"Transition is always a relief. Destination means death to me. If I could figure out a way to remain forever in transition, in the disconnected and unfamiliar, I could remain in a state of perpetual freedom..." I am a visual artist, and my body is my medium. I use a rigorous physical training practice as my form. I see the physical body as a sculptural mass with which to rupture norms. My process runs the gamut of performance, photography, sculpture, video and watercolor.

My son's wedding made me lose faith

My son's wedding made me lose faith | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

OUR son was married on July 3 - in the garden of the Palace of Versailles. The day was beautiful - high summer in Europe, flowers in bloom everywhere and possibly the most romantic location on the planet. I'm sure, as we told selected friends and family, they wondered what we were still doing in Townsville, just days before the ceremony. No doubt they also marvelled at our composure, given a wedding was in the offing, not least, the wedding of our eldest child. The answer isn't simple but it is the truth.
