twilight double header:

i wish i made this…

39. octopus Jar 16th c.

i gave my gallery talk this evening – and  – as usual – made great mention of this pot.

dated to about 1600 b.c.e.  – this pot is doing what i wish to do.

i pull the rhetorical – ’tilt your head and squint your eyes’ bit and ask my audience to imagine not a painted octopus on the surface of this pot – but a living, breathing octopus contained within this pot – begging to be let loose.

‘desperate’ is the word an astute observer applied to this octopus.  not dissimilar from the  ‘stuff’ i’m putting in my jars these days.

————–

i also talked a bit about ‘honesty’ and ‘sincerity’ while addressing my body of work – on pedastals – under lights.

so

i spoke a good deal about my experience as an ex-husband…

here’s the music of my mind

tilt your head and squint your eyes.
