Poem a Week
by Gary Michael Dault
I wish we were con-men
who hawked our hearts
in the marketplace
I wish we were freshwater pirates
panning for yachtsmen
in cool blue bays
in tough western deserts
lungs lined with rust
woman in every armchair
dog in every knapsack
a green bird
sizzling on the stove

You cannot simply categorize Gary, a writer, a painter, or a photographer. They all roll into one, with different emphasis at different stages, or circumstances, playing more or less parts within his rich life of being. But I can say with certainty, that he's one of the few artists I've met in my life with really good visuals, in other words, he's a pretty good photographer. In truth, not many people who know Gary are aware of this. He sort of demonstrated this in an earlier project called BRIEF CANDLES: 100 Very Short plays. The plays were published online in MONDAY ARTPOST on a weekly basis, from 2012 to 2014. In this body of work, he was the director, set designer, painter, script writer and sometimes even acted as the self-appointed protagonist.
In between November and December 2014, we organized an exhibition of BRIEF CANDLES: Sets and Texts at INDEXG. Fifteen images were exhibited with the scripts. Today, we open the Year 2021 with an online exhibition, reintroducing this delicious series, revisiting a number of acts selected from the plays.
Now, with everything ready, the characters standby on stage and the lights are positioned, Smilingly, and with grace, Gary the director/photographer proceeds to frame the scene.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee
Madagascar (March 2010) – We spent the better of the day slowly motoring the rebellious currents of the Tsiribihina, the floating barge finally docked as the light started to dim. Having arrived on the banks of a rather small village, the locals started to convene to watch the wayfarers from the shore. It started out innocent enough, but within an hour anything that could be used as drum was melodically whacked. The entire cast had inadvertently turned the boat into a lively jamboree, the first of its kind for the region.

A tree is a ladder
A tree is a comb
A leafy balloon
Or a parasol
A tree is many
A tree is one
A key to a door
Under the stars

From the Notebooks (2010-2020)
by Gary Michael Dault
From the Notebooks, 2010-2020.
Number 67: Two pages from a small booklet
(5 1/2" x 3 1/2") titled Fake Futurist Notebook, 2017-19.
The left page holds a still life with a hapless accompanying poem, while the right page bears a small scruffy painting called "Red Buddha." Both pages were apparently made on May 9, 2019.
