-- - 

such a wonderful sight
to watch and anticipate
the beginning
of a usual day

shut out the sound
perfect silence is all around
away from the crowd
a chance just to see what they're about

Swift River, Run;
2015, digital collage


What I think I heard was an underlying energy eventually erupt into a majestic, mechanical forest with a hundred flocking feet in the foreground. 


What I thought I saw were warmly dressed groups gathered to gawk as few fearlessly waded the waters of a glistening geyser, awaiting the expanse of a wet hot mountain clap up and collapse like red dust upon them and into the earth.

Art as a dynamic phenomenon that evolves in three stages: before it is made, while it is made and when it is percieved. ...the work of art that succeeds is the work which, like a piece of music that is just beginning, makes one aware of the silence that preceeds it, and of the possibilities it opens up and generates while the moment lasts; uniting the past, the present and the future.   

JOHN BERGER, The Look of Things 

 

All artists work to acquire and perfect the tools of their craft, and all art involves evaluation, clarification, and revision. But these are secondary tasks. They cannot begin (sometimes they must not begin) until the materia, the body of the work, is on the page or on the canvas. ...Premature evaluation cuts off the flow.
