My second update from the field. Studying the health challenges of immigrants in Middle Tennessee.
Check out my first update from the field.
I pull into the filling station and
Smile at the little niños
Playing tag around the trees and the
Gas pumps that have been
Sipped dry by thirsty SUV’s
Crawling North and South.
I trail a Kentucky girl,
Hoodie and leggings and all,
Toward the urine-stained bathroom tiles.
This is an effective remix.
Juxtapositions of Derek Paul Boyle
The work of artist Derek Paul Boyle can often seem humorous. Everyday objects are presented in simple juxtapositions that can be pleasantly surprising. His work begins with suppositions, trusted concepts, and expectations and ‘plays’ with them. Boyle depicts the familiar from a different conceptual angle to make his subject matter new. He says:
“I am interested in the power of contradiction, objects as events, and incompatible states of the self – what was once bound is made free, the known made unknown. In a wavering step between angst and serenity, fear and pleasure, I want to give form to anxiety, a shape to tension.”
I want this.
