Quote 15 Apr 10 notes

Carel Fabritius. 1654, oil on panel, 35.2 cm. x 22.8 cm.

The bird is fiction though the paint is real —
the paint, that is, of the original.

This one’s a copy pasted in a frame.
Each hour the gold light on his wall’s the same.

He hangs between the cupboard and the fridge
where, day after day, it is his privilege

to see our windowed sunlight come and go,
eavesdrop on music from the stereo,

mark my ditherings or eye my bathrobed wife.
I think he’d trade his stillness for my life,

just as I often envy him his stasis.
O plump brown household god, what most amazes

is how, held in that perfect light from Delft,
chained to a narrow rail, perched on a shelf

in 1654, you look at us —
small finch that might have watched Fabritius

the year flame rendered him to ash. You stare
from a modest trompe l’oeil heaven we don’t share.

Mute bird, they’re finite, as you know, the days.
But sing to us. Sing of the light that stays.

— "Goldfinch," Morri Creech (via elucubrare)

Carpet weaving is innate knowledge for me. It makes me feel connected to another time. It is a way of building meanings throughout my life and that of my ancestors.

I feel like this guitar was carved right out of the side of a viking or pirate ship! I am really loving the distressed look of this! Kudos to the builder of such a finally crafted vessel!

Donato Giancola

No waaaaaay.

I had image no. 2 on my wall from the age of 13 onwards. It was in a flyer for an exhibiton I couldn’t go to, and so I’d no idea who the artist was. I wanted to know for years, before forgetting about it.

Oh that’s splendid! 13 year old you has great taste.

I know Giancola mostly for his book covers. He’s done a ton of my favorites, including some particularly spectacular paintings for Isobelle Carmody’s Obernewtyn books. I’ll post those eventually, but my goodness good stuff. Especially Farseekers.
