FIDGETTE at Mammal Gallery, October 1, 2018
The show was accompanied by the following poem that works as the Artist's Statement.
Channel impulse as a prophet
of health, music as
pouring out of, siphoning into
Awareness. A collaboration of senses:
Time becomes meditation, continuation
And recovery —
for the Scroll’s duration,
Manifestations of Survival,
Maintenance of mind —
Fullness, Grief pools of selves
and self languish with nostalgia.
Still the Fidgette persists.
Water collected on perch;
A creative life feeds back
Into itself. Improving the improvisation,
The recollection of reflection.
Let action not involve reaction
Unless on paper, abreation.
Idle Hands are the Devil’s Workshop
