WORKING NOTES, MEREDITH STRICKER:
These pages are from a gothic romance called The Queen Bee, by Edna Lee, sent to me in the mail by Karen Ganz, a painter living in Seattle. We draw & paint into a series of books, glue in scraps & pictures to find/erase our text. Reading as a way of writing, then. Speaking not exactly English--more like a bee hum--paint speaking & torn edge & white space speaking.
