As the last changeling born to an
Irish gypsy and a winding
Alaskan river, I packed my caravan
early with little knives,
toe shoes, sable brushes, loon
feathers, and a stethoscope.
I posed nude for magicians waving fine
they taught me to paint songs on woven
cloth. I followed
turtles building great castles; they
taught me to scratch
dreams on dead trees. I continue my
travels, midwife little
worlds, exist on laughter and mystery.
I thank you and
every artist I have ever known.
Sea Creature, Donna Boguslav
In the twenty-five years Donna and I have known each other -
and mingled our lives and spirits - we've explored a wide
shared territory of life, and the great good news we can report from that
exploration is that everything is goosed by the beats of
cosmic laughter. To have the chance to mix our versions of
that discovery in this show offers me
the greatest happiness I can imagine. And I suspect seeing our work together
may prove entertaining for anyone game
enough to walk up to it. I'm the child of two artists,
although mostly have made my way through
life as a writer; however, quite without warning, I
started doing a drawing a day on April
Fool's Day 2009 - creatures emerging
from which have accompanied poems I'd already been writing. Since then they've found their ways
into art shows and poetry journals but mostly into Donna's hands, where I most want them to go. But now, in this magical mystery
tour, Donna and I get to show our strangenesses to you, too! Come join us!
We Sense It Had To Do With Blue, Guy Kettelhack
