Meet our Cast: Bronwyn
Transylvanian and proud!
What's your sign, baby?
My sun is Libra, but boy, are me and my Cancer rising tightly knit!
Pretty typical: a poet/artist/musician grows up in the suburbs and won't stop talking about that first solo trip she took to New Orleans.
Did you ever hear about how Imogen Heap built her own robotic hand to sculpt music out of thin air? Something like that, but, equally, an elementary school art teacher will do just fine. I'm already a poet, so how much better can it get?
Any ink or extra holes?
Fifteen of them on my head and two babies on my fingers!
Long walks on the beach?
Better if you're stranded.
If you were an alcoholic beverage, what would you be?
Probably an open carton of red wine.
Who's your favorite artist?
Right now? Chris Cran, Yayoi Kusama, Alex Colville, Andrew Wyeth, Tom Wesselmann, Gustav Klimt, John William Waterhouse, Jean Michel Basquiat, Marina Abramović, Rachel Jones, Suzy Lake, Kara Bowers!! And Linda Nochlin, for reminding me that there is still work to be done on this list.
Who's your favorite writer?
Gosh! Sylvia Plath, Kathleen Jamie, Sina Queyras, Stephanie Bolster, Maggie Nelson, Lisa Robertson, Frank O'Hara, Steven Jesse Bernstein, Dennis Cooper, Ally Turner, Adrian Ngai, Jake Byrne, James Joyce, and whoever wrote that beach poem I loved so much.
Bread-making, but it's starting to be more than a pastime. I also like running down crowded streets, not for exercise.
Favorite kind of underwear?
Whatever makes me feel like the boss!
Favorite sex toy?
A really good guitar riff, or industrial techno.
What Rocky means to you?
A portable paradise, a work of art, and my favourite movie of all time!
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
If all goes according to plan, looking back at two MFAs, maybe a PhD underway, a leaven that I've mastered, and the rest I don't know but I would like to be happy and well-travelled.
