What is Poetry? Part 2

This group of paintings uses blue-as-subject -poetry explored through abstraction; an unhurried meditation on bits of landscape and air (John Ashbery on Joan Mitchell) and the pulling my own stoop-shouldered kind of blues across paper (Carl Phillips in his poem blue). I'm looking to Joan Mitchell's painting vocabulary as inspiration, particularly her cool end of the spectrum paintings married with all the poets I've ever loved and their blue words.
I am taking a blue hiatus and will resume work on the blue musings poetry paintings on paper sometime in the winter of 2020/2021 Check back or follow me on instagram to see what I've been up to.
