Found wood, poetry
38 x 9 x 2
Each sculpture comes with its own poem by the artist:
Solitude, loneliness and being an artist
“Aren’t you lonely being an artist?
I mean, don’t you want to go out?
Don’t you miss being with people?”
“No. I am very happy doing my art 24/7
I go out when I need to.”
“But that’s lonely.
It’s not normal!”
(Don’t ask me to comment on that word, please).
“Let me tell you a typical day:
I roam my internal landscape.
Oh the places I go!
till I reach the shores of my heart
and let the waves wash over
the pebbles of my hurt.
Then, when I have done my admin,
Wood joins me.
We talk about gender and identity
And the way we grow.
Wood talks to me about the courage it takes
to be my own best friend.”
