The Meat – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Spontaneous – Word of the Day

Photo: One segment of the Northcliffe Art Walk, sculptures in the bush, quite striking when you get such colour randomly appearing. We went on a whim.

 

“Why not seize the pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation.!”  Jane Austen, Emma.

The Meat

All the grids of the world
only ever speak of disorganisation,
cages occasion freedom
while structure poses random,
so stand where you will
where you feel drawn,
the choice is yours,
but mark my words,
of segue, impulse and whim,
well, that’s where the meat is.

Expressionist

Express

‘Composition 1V’ 1911, by Wassily Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) one of many painters who was a part of the vibrant Expressionist movement and who worked in expressionism. This was the use of distortion and exaggeration, and intense colour, for emotional effect. The movement was all about subjective and spontaneous self-expression.

And nature does a fabulous job, it can express too, the pastiche of intense colour, abstract, and emotive, is a natural and living expressionist painting.
