Rumor has it she passed away yesterday. We spoke with her a few times over the years, and thought about her work a lot more than that. She was such a direct and generous person, and an unflinching artist and poet. A good human being. We’d never even considered a future without her in it, and are absolutely heartbroken to know we won’t meet her again.
