14 Movements: A Symphony In Color And Words


This summer, I'll be making a mile-long painting along the Broad Street median for the DNC.
It's called 14 Movements: A Symphony In Color And Words
It's a huge abstract painting incorporating elements of music composition, poetry, visual art, experience, and movement. I'm honored to be collaborating with the current poet laureate of Philadelphia, Yolanda Wisher, to create language for the piece. I am drawing from word choice and themes found in her acclaimed book of poetry, Monk Eats an Afro

The piece will be installed in late July.

Spring Skin





between you and me our
spring skin was every spring


and every day lasted all day
every night went on forever


and there was happiness
timeless untouchable

futureless
