&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
& 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

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

Other Faces of Mona Lisa by geo geller – oil paint on x-Ray film

Other Faces of Mona Lisa by geo geller – oil paint on x-Ray Film and beyond

Mona Lisa… is she happy… is she sad is she mad is she glad, is she good is she bad – who knows maybe all those things and more and maybe its what isn’t painted, isn’t said that speaks to our invisible self that grabs us and holds us and maybe that is also what touched Leonardo da Vinci – i know its what touches me and maybe you, and maybe that and more is behind my Other Faces Of Mona Lisa too,

My paintings are not paintings to me but an experience that touches me and those who have been touched by the human condition of life – not everybody will get it, some will see themselves in them while others will look away, but what will be will be, to me they are all of us inside out – they express the invisible faces, Other Faces of Mona Lisa, myself and you
