After Dali

"How clear can art be?" Salvador asked, "when surrealism is the order-of-the-day, the order of my dreams, and for sale at the gallery down one block and over two." "Persistence - persistence always forays to visions we never knew were in us, out of us, about us; That's believable." "Gala says I use her for muse and of course she is right, she is all ways right." "There are elephants and chessboards and fluid watch-hands with eggs to fly in every direction. Ask me what they mean and I'll throw it back at you. How do I know what my dreams mean let alone yours, but you may procure them for a pittance." "Clearly, inscrutable is a word I like to twirl in my mustache, for I only buy the finest mustache wax, and THAT is inscrutable." "Glass is to be seen through, a monocled eye to the deeper dreams just under the surface. Let us pay homage to form, then defenestrate it." © Goode Guy 2014-01-04 ekphrastic for 2014-01-12 at the Charles Taylor Art Museum of slump glass of "After Dali" by Nate Avery
