The artist talk featuring Joe Doldon’s exhibition was really interesting, lovely to hear some in depth discussion about creating art. Here is my poetic response to Joe Doldon’s piece, Blind Contortion. It’s a beautiful sculpture, click through to view!
Alien flowers flourish and unfurl
sails going nowhere
the wall spits and tears at outside
an idea without substance
rain mourns the ground
slippery and ice on the windows
my breath a solid block from my lips
how the wind tucks its way into the room’s corner
and baffled, plucks the blinds like a stranger
trying to peer into your curtained world.
