CY  TWOMBLY  GALLERY             Houston, Texas

Although we are still finishing up our BLUES FOR DUFFY POWER collaboration, A. J. Kaufmann and I have been putting together another collaborative work we hope to have done by the end of 2009: a long-form poem that is both inspired by the work of American painter/sculptor  CY TWOMBLY and that attempts to transpose the techniques and themes and aesthetic of his work to the poetic page. Yes, that’s a tall order, but we have a tendency to set ambitious goals for ourselves….otherwise, why bother?

I mention this because I’ll be passing through Houston next weekend on the way to Galveston, and I’m going to take the opportunity to once again visit the CY TWOMBLY GALLERY while there. It’s an amazing place in that it is certainly one of the few galleries dedicated solely to a living artist, and each room is “themed” featuring related works and often multi-part works, so each room is an “environment” where one can truly feel Twombly’s work and experience his vision. Talk about someone who has created his own unique aesthetic!!! A. J. and I are excited about this venture, and I look forward to spending some time taking in the vision of the master next weekend in Houston…
