Visual Poems

precious time is slipping away

hope it don’t rain all day

Chez Pierre has MOVED

 

maybe there will be a place to stop and rest awhile

beyond the horizon

Three Songs

 

salvation after a while

follow the river, it leads to the sea

August Light

Chez Pierre has MOVED is a boxed set of nine books that are handmade by the artist.  Each book is 9.5 x 8 inches and contains between 15 and 19 images. Images are pigment ink printed on Red River Palo Dura paper. Hard covers are linen and Epson Matte paper on book board. Edition limited to 10 sets.

Each title is composed with a set of images that when brought together resonate and fall into a visual rhythm that somehow goes beyond the linear narrative. The images are from New England where I live and the southeastern states where I grew up and now visit.  I see myself as searching for awareness and understanding in small places where I have a long acquaintance. The photographs are for me a means of breaking these human spaces down into fragments and slowing down the celestial clock that never stops ticking.  The recombining of images in books becomes a means of unlocking the human experience from each image, and in smallish and rather personal ways trying to understand my part of this mostly bewildering age of man.
