&poems

Filed under: stay tuned — admin @ 7:01 pm

the & POEMS series of
poems goes back to the mid 1990’s that i just stumbled on – they originally were ideas for titles to some of my shadow painting in which i was trying to figure out what the people in the painting were doing and i made a list of things that i heard that some how invaded my mind and took over and under and led to two year and a half binge writing episodes and 10,000+ poems later including random poems and & poems which made themselves – hopefully i will get it together to print some of them and to read some of them and to do something with some of them if they don’t kill me first

& where about were you

& where about were you
& would you mind
& didn’t stop to think no you don’t
& make you feel better
& try to remember
& struggling to say something
& why did this happen
& there must be a reason
& not quite right
& from beyond the grave
& at my/you/our expense previous history
& a mystery
& something special
& astonished
& search me
& whole sordid business grace and dignity
& help yourself
& not found the time
& had time on hands
& long time out of life
& to regain strength
& perhaps
& completely in the dark
& what is troubling you
& better to
& frantic wondering
& isn’t the case
&
& try to call something to mind
& something that should have been there and wasn’t
& a bit embarrassing look on the bright side
& looks as if
& evaporated
& raw question is how
& can’t tell you how sorry i am
& don’t remember much else
& don’t know what to say
& right under our noses
& nonsense
& managed to engineer
& must talk to somebody
& can’t stand much more of this
& walking around asking questions

poetry

StrungUp – some playing with words and an exploration on my variation on a theme of a violin strung up with bow hairs woven through the loose violin strings and held in my hands without a parachute and without a bow and arrow and sow and sew

Leon Golub

Tribute to Leon Golub

“Leon Golub Can Be Reached Under G”

short film (rough cut)

by
geo geller

3 and 19 min excerpt from conversation at
ArtOmi awards ceremony – January 27, 2003

tribute to the wonder and humanity of Leon Golub – 1922-2004 – whose life was dedicated to Challenging us to Challenging the Status Quo
Leon was truly in his own private revolution –

i stumbled on Leon Golub at the Art Omi 2003 award event at the new museum – at the time i was and am still filming two parallel works which are still in progress – Courage to Be Creative – discovering the imagination and creative process and the other called “Framing New York” – on the life/energy/art of new york with an extensive segment on “art in new york and new york in art” – and so what you see is a brief glimpse in both the 3 &19 min pieces from my encounter of the unusual/usual kind with Leon Golub – which Leon inadvertently titled “Leon Golub Can Be Reached Under G” i believe “Leon Golub Can Be Reached Under G” captures a little bit of his spark, spirit, complexity and quick mindedness in action – with an added peek into his his-ness, his wonder, delight, playfulness, thoughtfulness, passion, compassion, intensity, vitality, warmth, social conscious and forever engaged in life and its inventions and a willingness to think and re-inventing himself like all good revolutionaries willing to question the unquestionable – the status quo
