..."I made "Monkey Shrine" a vehicle for expressing as much of the pleasure as I could. Against such self-indulgence I have sought to describe the paradoxes of fear and pain and isolation, using repellent images which nevertheless convey dignity and pathos. In no way is any of this work satire, It is simply a set of metaphors which glance off each other."
