A Tree Becomes a Talking Tower
"A Tree Becomes a Talking Tower" - acrylic on repurposed plywood panel, 18 x 18.5 x .75. Ready to hang (sides are painted; no need to frame. Hanging wire is attached).
In the beginning and in the end the only decent
Definition is tautology: man is man,
Woman woman, and tree tree, and world world,
Slippery, self-contained; catch as catch can.
Which when caught between the beginning and end
Turn other than themselves, their entities unfurled,
Flapping and overlapping -a tree becomes
A talking tower, and a woman becomes world.
from I Am That I Am, by poet Louis MacNeice
This piece is sold unframed but ready to hang. It will be shipped flat, carefully packaged in mostly repurposed shipping materials.
