Self-annihilating Kitty Quilt was abandoned this week to work on my website.
My first art book was on British Pop of the sixties. I LOVED Yellow Submarine when I saw it in Ankara, where we were living when it came out. I loved the clash of cultures I was living with at the time: Turkish crafts and pop-culture cinema, Greek ruins, Roman ruins, Byzantine ruins, fantastic Islamic architecture, Americans abroad, and the halting English spoken by my Chinese-Japanese mother who was never fully present. Even then, everything was rainbow-colored by the Beetles.
