A Conversation With Bovey Lee – Paper Runway Interview

The first and last questions from Paper Runway:

Tell us a bit about you and your background

I grew up in Hong Kong with my parents and two sisters. When we were young, we learned to play the piano but I found it boring. I did much better in art, learning Chinese calligraphy at age ten and painting and drawing in my formative years. In 1993, I came to the United States for graduate school and have been living here ever since.

Answer these short questions

* Tea or coffee: Tea
* Sweet or savoury: both

The Cutting Edge – A Poem by E. Ethelbert Miller

THE CUTTING EDGE

      (for Bovey)

Democracy
is not paper

it is something
living

at times
bleeding (but free).

The artist
must take

a knife
to the world.

   – E. Ethelbert Miller
