Press Release:

I SAW, QUITE SIMPLY
A HAPPY INTERCOURSE OF LINES AND BODIES
I SAW, QUITE SIMPLY

A HAPPY INTERCOURSE OF LINES AND BODIES

LINES AS BODIES
&& LINED BODIES
LINES AS BODIES

&& LINED BODIES

THE IMAGES SHARE THE SAME EASILY RECOGNIZEABLE BOLD DETERMINED FIGURATION

CIRCULATED POP, QUOTIDIAN, COLLEGE POSTER

THEY WERE EVERYWHERE I DIDN’T WANT TO BE
SHOPPING WITH MY MOTHER ON CLEARANCE RACKS IN SECOND RATE  SHOPPING MALLS, CLUTTERING 42ND ST MANHATTAN ON  TRIPS FROM NEW JERSEY WITH MY FATHER TO SEE RENT AFTER ‘EXPLORING THE CITY’

IN BANNER ADS FOR WALL DECALS AND COFFEE MUGS CLUTTERING THE ONLINE MAGAZINES I WANTED TO READ IN A PEACE LIBERATED FROM FACEBOOKS POOR ATTEMPTS AT UNDERSTANDING MY CONSUMER DESIRES.

LET THEM CIRCULATE IN REINCARNATION DANCING IN SCREEN SAVERS.

TRAINS AND SIDEWALKS  IN THE CITY  ARE A CERTAIN FREEDOM TO
UNMEDIATED MOVEMENT

TRAVEL THROUGH AND IN AN ACT OF FREEDOM (NO CARS) AND RITUAL IN THE NAME OF PHYSICAL UNBOUNDEDNESS, EVEN IF IN SPITE OF THE POLICING OF THE SAME

I RECOGNIZE THE LINES IN SUBWAY STATIONS
HOLDING ON TO THEIR BRICK EMBANKMENTS
WALKING BY

FACE UP IN AIRPLANE MODE

INITIALLY, TESTAMENTS TO AN ERA WHERE THE CITY WAS ANIMATED BY THE CITIZEN-CREATED PUBLIC WORK ON PUBLIC SURFACES.

HOW BEAUTIFUL, A VIBRANT SPLASH OF COLORFUL OPTIMISM IN A CYNICAL AND CYNICALLY DESIGNED CITY

LINES AND BODIES – CONGENIALITY IMBUED IN THEIR COLORFUL MOVEMENT AND ALSO SOMETHING OTHER … SINISTER, SARDONIC AND DYSTOPIC IN THEIR PREDILECTIONS

MIRAGES OF GREETING CARD SENTIMENTALITY GIVE WAY
AND WITH IT THE BASTARDIZED OFFSPRING OF ART-AS-COMMERCE

LEAVE BEHIND A VICTM

REAL EYES IN A REAL CITY-IN-TRANSIT WHERE THE NOSTALGIC LAMENTS OF THE LIVING LEGENDS OF  DOWN- AND UP- TOWN BOHEMIAS  NEED LITTLE CITATION IN THEIR JADEDNESS

THE LOSS OF ZEITGEIST AS SUCH / NOTED, REFERENCED Id. INFINITUM, WITH PAPERWORK TO PROVE AND EXPANSIVE WINDOWS FOR SCALE,
IN NEUTRAL TONED, CHEAP AND DERIVATE MODERNIST CONDOS

IN NEUTRAL TONED, CHEAP AND DERIVATE MODERNIST CONDOS

OVER-DISTRUBUTED  OBJECTS OF CONSUMPTION SATURATING THE LIQUIDATED MARKETS OF FACTORY PRODUCED HOUSEHOLD ORNAMENTS

SIMULTANEOUSLY SUPPORTING THE FOUNDATION’S ENTERPRISE AND TEACHING ME FUNDAMENTALS OF

A VISUAL LANGUAGE CASTRATED OF ITS GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURE IN THIS FORM

A VISUAL LANGUAGE CASTRATED OF ITS GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURE IN THIS FORM

FIGURES DELIVERED AS SYMBOLS OF A NEU HUMANISM
FIGURES DELIVERED AS SYMBOLS OF A NEU HUMANISM

 

REPRODUCTIONS FLATTENED THE TEXTURES LEFT IN THE TRAILS OF BRUSH STROKES AND MERGED THE MOST BENEVOLENT SYMBOLS IN THIS LEXICON TO THE MOST IMMEDIATE MONSTERS OF THE NEOLIBERAL ORDER.

 

AND ELSEWHERE
OUTLINED FIGURES SNICKER IN HOSPITAL WALKWAYS
DANCE ABOVE PUBLIC POOLS
FUCK FREELY IN MENS BATHROOMS IN WEST VILLAGE BUILDINGS WHERE THE PLUMBING HAS SINCE BEEN RE-ROUTED

REMIND EVERY EYE PASSING BY A CERTAIN ROADSIDE IN HARLEM OF THE VILLAINS (AND SAINTS) THAT POSSES THE CITY

CONTINUITY IN SPRAYED LINE(S)REMAINS UNBROKEN
ALL THE MORE APPARENT IN THE LIMINAL ZONE OF A CITY WHERE THE MTA CONNECTS THE
BORDER OF ONE MURAL  AT  THE STATION OF DEPARTURE TO THE

FOLD OF A LEG ON MOUNTED FIGURE IN A PARK OUTSIDE THE STATION OF ARRIVAL. 

IT HAS MADE ITS WAY ACROSS  GENERATIONS OF BULBS-TURNED-PIXELATED CARTOGRAPHY IN ANIMATED SIGNAGE AND IT PROTESTS THE
RACIST STATE SPONSORED BRUTALITY OF THE NYPD 
TRACING AND DISTORTING THE FIGURE OF MICHAEL STEWART

FILLING THE FACELESS FIGURES WITH BROWN SKIN AND ARTICULATED FEATURES

RADIANT BABIES GROW INTO
ECSTATIC FIGURES MANIPULATING  AND PUNCTURING ONE ANOTHER
A COITUS  PATTERN ARTICULATED BY MOIST HIPS
UNDULATING THROUGH LED JUNGLES WHERE CYLINDRICAL FRUIT FALLS
INTO HANDS MOUTHS IN VEINS
EMERGES ON THE SURFACE OF SKIN 
TAUGHT, IN DENIAL

TAUGHT, IN DENIAL

LINE, FIGURES IT GRANTS CERTAIN VITALITIES TO
A REVELATORY POWER
THE NATURE OF THEIR WIDE AND RAPID PROLIFERATION
COULD HAVE FORESEEN LEGACIES AS POOR IMAGES PROMPTING THE CONSUMER OF 
GIFT WRAP ON SALE AT MACYS TO GOOGLE WHO IN FACT WAS RESPONSIBLE
SYMBOLS, DEPLETED KINECTIC AUDACITY
A SUGGESTION/ MARKER
INVITATION TO LINES, BODIES TRANSFORMATIONS
OF EMBOD-IED ENERGIES
IN ON A JOKE / COGNIZANT OF A MISSION
HOMAGE TO THE
CURRENT RECURRENT TENDER AGE
