Sitting in the Back Seat

Worcester Art Museum, November 2019

Who is the person
known, but unknown
a mystery to the mind.

Our desires
sizzle and sparks
a rather dark world

where my orange dot
retreats and burns
with hell flames, hotter.

I once laid
flat, in your car
now I kneel at an altar.

You say a woman glows
as a sun-lit finch
woven in grass baskets

and I perched above
your head
my soul soars higher.

Pregnant Woman, Otto Dix, Worcester Art Museum

Doors

Midland Antiques 2/12/2017

The past has happened. Somewhere a message exists, sands of time to brush away. A future to mold and comprehend.

These doors would be great to repurpose. Whose hands have touched them? Whose hands will continue to control the expanse of time? Whose vision births a new day?

 “All art is exorcism. I paint dreams and visions too; the dreams and visions of my time. Painting is the effort to produce order; order in yourself. There is much chaos in me, much chaos in our time.” — Otto Dix

Otto Dix, German Expressionist The movement was conceived in opposition of Impressionism. The Expressionist painted with raw passion. Creating emotionally dramatic images with pure color and striking originality.
