Art of the Day: Monday September 12, 2005

UNSHEATHED

- by C. k. Agathocleous

This week's theme: Poetry

"3 Poets: Dickinson, Poe & cummings" is the title of one of EBSQ's September exhibitions. It is not, however, the first show EBSQ has done with poetry as it's theme. In September 2002, the members of EBSQ Plus participated in "Conversations With Dead Poets." This week Art Of The Day features some of those works.

Art: UNSHEATHED by Artist C. k. Agathocleous
Yosa Buson (1716-1783) was a great poet who was also a
distinguished painter. He is known as one of the
masters of the haiku. His poems are visually intense
and they are in love with color.

A field of mustard,
no whale in sight,
the sea darkening.

Blown from the west,
fallen leaves gather
in the east.

Autumn evening-
there's joy also
in lonliness.

~Buson

UNSHEATHED was painted in the same same spirit - in
appreciation of the aesthetics of the haiku. The idea
that the most intense experience can be condensed in to
a few critically important words, or lines, or colors
and by experiencing them become all the more meaningful.
