Moondancer’s Love — Chapter I
(Inspired by original manuscript from: https://www.instagram.com/poetic.wolf__/) beyond the moon she's posed nude submerged dripping scribbled in lines the creation of many lovers white lines—black background thrashed in pencils brushes blemish scars within scars within the universe knows her dream love ruptures—black background in this narrative the dream works one chases the other until they both give in because they know it's more real than the empty chases she sings at with blood arrows it washes easy white lines—white canvas sometimes the bird forgets whom to love it finds the most wounded pigeon pretending dove knowing it can't fly with her wings clipped replaced with paper all the dead birds float black lines—black background love is not equal but it is fair like a boat unsteady as it floats moments before splitting... the storm then thrashes and swallows everything breaking what hasn't yet birdpaperboatdream all of it she sings not for them but at them howling at the moon i sing for her as they shut their frightened eyes tails as heads chasing themselves barely there as she stencils them in their dreams or hers in the burning majesty of theirs our dreams of each other: white—black—white—no background and me holding my petals to the sky on this pale night under her rainbow moon am invisible like she like us blinded by dripping doves by what does not serve us because the world is cruel and we pity what's broken we are hidden lovers like the sky oh the sky filled with enchantment with endless possibility yet nowhere to catch but back from where we came oh yes i know her and my love is truer than the rest but love knows to fail so we dream both as one invisibly clipping our wings before the sun dies to make new ones by LORIN DREXLER
Featured Artist – Hom Nguyen
Hom Nguyen is a Franco-Vietnamese artist born in 1972. He lives and works in Paris. Hom Nguyen’s style, in its connection with expressionism, speaks to everyone, with immediacy. His unique approach vibrates with contained vivacity revealing a connection to Western culture – totally free, without boundaries, leading him towards other traditions like Asian art and philosophy, calligraphy, and Chan Buddhism.
The artist’s work is a matter of existential commitment. It keeps a record of the ordeals experienced. It tells the truth, revealing it more extensively, and with deeper intensity. Hom Nguyen’s art merges the visible with the invisible, intimate whims with fleeting dreams. In perpetual movement, incessantly renewing themselves, constantly experimenting with different mediums, Hom Nguyen’s lines give form to, and simultaneously disfigure, the image emerging from a magma of overlapping tangles and spider-like superimpositions.
Between imprint and dissolution, temporary and eternal, Hom Nguyen’s style is particularly sensitive to the human values he embodies and conveys: a sentiment of appeasement, respect, and communion. Values which, for him, are the foundation of all art, like a path that links one human being to another, and all of us to each other.
