Poem a Week
by Gary Michael Dault
In memory of my friend, painter Daniel Oxley, who died of cancer on June 19.
he loved colour
but it could not
he loved poetry
but the nets of language
his jars of paint
turn to water
became a brittle
sheet of ivory
death is absurd
* I doubt whether Daniel actually used a palette (few painters do), but I needed an image for the realm of his art which death (this is an imagistic trope and not biographical fact) made progressively infra-thin (the word is Marcel Duchamp's)--to the point of closing.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee
USA (February, 2018) – We spent part of the afternoon exploring The Broad; wandering between oversized Koons sculptures and whimsical Basquiat's, Lichtenstein's and Warhol's to name a few. The highlight felt like a nanosecond; inside one of the Kusama infinity installations, alone locked in a mirrored box full of string lights. It certainly marvelled the senses. After our curious carousal, I hopped across the street to admire one of Gehry's architectural wonders.
