margot smith and me

they all start with nothing

with a white nothingness

a black void

or silence

bit by bit by bit

you must build

in tiny points

grand sweeps

one piece in the puzzle

echoes and shadows

how do the clouds sound

what colour is piano

i administer the kiss of life to the paper

eventually i will bury it in paint

like i fill up the quiet darkness with sound

sound of murmuring elements

music can describe where words fall short

yet words harness music to a song

i seek a union with all 3 realms

the word the painting the song

a common principle governs everything

even creators must abide by its terms

a golden ratio to enable the measurement

of beat of colour or of idea

of course once discovered this principle would explode

i will tour the world ranting my unimpressionistic manifesto

cellists will sketch and write prose

the sculptors will sing in steel

    Renaissance Man, and Medieval Man, and Ancient Man, and Future Man, and Transhistorical Man. You’re a lot of moments rolled into one, Mr. K. Were you always the Time Being? Or did you choose the name and become it?

    That is a haunting painting of Margot, I did not know her and only a little of her music from you and Peter. I know you must miss her and are probably angry over the way she decided to leave this earth. Your art work always captures such beauty and emotion. You have tapped into this with your Art, Man, and Technolgy set and I hope with this next set of paintings you are doing you could really take that concept to another level. I hope you do something like that project again. As far as your App it is worth so much more than 1300 A$ so dont settle for anything less. Damn Jack Bingo I knew there was no way he was this successful on his own accord, now the secret is out.

    Take Care,

    so I was sitting w/some friends, we were at the galaxy pub, there was an announcement overheard: flyers at the door being handed out (on your way out) they were printed on both sides one for listening one for sight each had fine print at the bottom giving references made to an expiration date… so still redeemable and do these coupons apply?

    Absolutely exquisite portrait, Steven!
    Intense and beautiful. A stunner.

    Was watching Autoluminescent the other night and Rowland’s writing style reminds me a lot of yours, esp in songs like The Golden Age of Bloodshed.

    A sad and haunted soul , but what a talent.
    Probably far too sensitive for this world…

    This painting sk has touched me , it disturbs me I’m all over the place. So much hurt a broken spirit I keep seeing those eyes. There is a story there to be told and I will never know.
