Peter Rostovsky: Writing and Criticism

Many of my writings are under the heteronym David Geers. This separation allows for a mode of inquiry that is distinct from my artistic practice and pushes the latter into new areas of thought and production. As a persona and writerly vehicle, Geers's voice is as different from mine as Mark Twain's was from that of Samuel Clemens. Rather than seeking some future reconciliation (of the familiar artist-as-writer self-advocacy), they are meant to stand in a productive tension, each interrogating and testing the assumptions of the other.
