Emerging Writer Series: Claire Engkaninan Low Aniko Press, May 2024.

"My paintings are made with the precision of a concert violinist, while my writing is closer to nightmares being jolted out of my brain. Why is painting completely tidy, while writing is a chaotic surprise? I wish I knew. I just know I need both in order to live and breathe. Art is my heart, and writing is my lungs." 

In conversation with Elaine Chennatt, Claire discusses being in This Fresh Hell; the importance of spending time with other solitary weirdos; why the best funeral she ever attended still inspires her; and how her own creative processes are inexplicable.
