Sewer scroll

Here is one of my Beijing covers mounted as a scroll.

Sewer cover detail

One day I'll learn what all the chacters on the various sewer covers
around Beijing say. I think this one says "mix with Coke for good
Chinese joke".

Chinese sewer caps

I broke down and did a few sewer covers over here. The Chinese text
was just too tempting.

Writting with water

This is a great pass time of the Chinese calligrapher. Writting with
water. It evaporates and he starts all over. This is at the Temple of
Heaven in Beijing.

Crazy bridge

Here is me in front of a crazy bridge. Later I swam in the water with
a bunch of crazier Chinese dudes. People gathered along the bridge to
watch figuring we'd get munched by leaches or a dragon but we didn't.
Very refreshing though.

Passing through

Swinging Tiananmen Squate is in the background. The Mao wow factor.


Here is a wall of several finished scrolls. I've got them all rolled
up now and I'm off to Xiamen to set up the big show!

Word field painting repost

Got into a web proxy that let's me navigate censored sights. Noticed
my word field painting didn't post right the other day. So here it is.

Double scroll

Packing up for Xiamen today. Here is a double panel scroll I finished
a couple days ago.

After I painted flowers I started doing these wave paintings.


Loopy poem

This is a contrast to the word field. A loose rendition of a poem I
wrote for turkey vultures.

Word Field Picture

This is one of my word field pieces. It's a poem about peace that is based on a yogi's meditation on peace. 

peace floods me and blizzards me

extreme weather of my peace freaks out the weatherman

peace reeks around me but for my culture it is a subtle perfume

peace runs through me in a race we all win

peace is an uzi and a semi-automatic pistol to my unprotected worry

peace is an arson casing my house of pain

peace is a spark expanding to all and even burns down the insurance company

peace burns water and smokes out mist and fills infinity until only those alive

are ones who breathe peace peace is blood keeping me alive and kills those who cut it

peace flows through bodies of beauty that radiate the single intention for peace to

grow and enter and embrace and be impregnated by peace

peace is a smell that no one wants to wash away

peace clings to body mind and memory

peace is the soul of dust and lost objects

peace is left after all else which incircles me like a tongue made of a

million tongues except that peace is a billion tongues 

for each one of the million tongues of peace

Scroll Series (detail)

Scroll Series

This is one of my visual poems I created over here. The image is from
a drawing I made in New York before leaving. I used traditional
Chinese ink and paper and mounted the work as a scroll; typical for
Chinese calligraphic work.

Bomb disposal orb

Better shot of the bomb disposal orb.

China Bomb Disposal

To all my friends in New York City,
I'm thinking of you daily with regards to that dud car bomb and all.
Saw this on my way home on the Beijing subway; a bomb disposal can.
And it's got a real slick looking seal of Communist China on the front.

In China

So I made it to China. Here I am on my first day seeing one of the
sights; The Temple of Heaven.

I have leaned that the google blogging software I use to update my
sight so easily is one of the things sensored here. So although I can
post, because it's done through email, I can't see it.

No problem, I'll just keep my sunglasses handy, and my secret spy hat.

My New Home

For the next 2 months I'll be living here at Red Gate Gallery in
Beijing, China. Red Gate is a converted watchtower built during the
Ming Dynasty. I'll be updating this section of my website regularly so
come back soon!
