Bloodless No More
"Bloodless No More" - mixed media mosaic on wood panel 12 x 12 x .75 .
In the great song “Bloodless for Now” Andrew Bird sings passionately about an “uncivil war”. And Plath… “Well, the best lack all conviction And the worst keep sharpening their claws They're peddling in their dark fictions While what's left of us Well, we just hem and we haw”
It feels both uncivil and chaotic now. The unknown far outweighs the known as we go about daily lives feeling the earth rumbling beneath us. We are, in fact, bloodless no more. In her poem, Sylvia Plath urges us to expand: “Perfectly voiceless, Widen the crannies, Shoulder through holes. We Diet on water, On crumbs of shadow, Bland-mannered, asking Little or nothing” We are being asked to persevere through the uncertainty & pain.
