Description
"These works evoke the territory of the imagination, when thought is submerged and rendered helpless. Surrounded by darkness and silence, the outside world peels away and vision originates from within. Logic and reason become scaffolding. It is soothing to draw on solid stone when trying to capture such a nebulous realm" -Herlinde Spahr Poem on verso and within image: "The Quivering Board" Don't think that the heaven's look down on us, a world of roots, of girth, the apple's downward fall. They wait and wait and listen with care, so rare s the sounds that travels up high. Like the diver on his springboard bearing down with all his weight to become weightless, breathless at the apex, a soul of cuscle in thin air. The gods don't know how close we've come. They only hear the quivering board, the splash whan bodies come back down to earth. -Herlinde Spahr
