POMEGRANATE SHOES (A Sudden Gust of Wind)

A pomegranate tree outside was bending in the November wind, heavy with fruit, most of it broken open, outer skin-shells hardened, and split. I brought some into the drawing space together with a pair of patent leather red high heel slingbacks. Drawing them into an intertwined spiral, their shapes transposed into a form-sequence like whirling papers, ambiguously-bordering city-edges, in a wavy field, or better, a vertical transparent stack, spiraling media, each image enmeshed or superceded by the next (crystalline crumbled trash, stylized waveforms, cavity, pomegranate, shoes). Overwriting all careful compositions, excessively. Persephone—as she emerged from the ground (paper)—maybe, she tossed off her shoes as she ran up over the top of the drawing. This drawing is a cartoon for digital montage (including One/One/One, 2007).
