is not enough.
“Resistance of the heart is not enough” was my response to the Bread & Puppet poster, “Resistance of the heart to business as usual (their website is: http://breadandpuppet.org/). I love the poster, but I always find myself thinking, resistance of the heart really isn’t enough. It’s a crucial start. But alone, it means nothing get done and lots of people talk about how important it is to resist. Resist like the very thought is enough to excuse them from action.
This self-portrait is my response: you have to get to work, you have to take action and change the world, remake and break through what is already there.
A few books using luna moth images. Some are stenciled, some printed with a silkscreen.
This series of books, Prayer for an Agricultural Future, was mostly made while I was working on a farm this past summer. They all explore, in some way or another, the theme of being connected to land and landscape and of working with the land.
It’s a dark earth kind of
day after day love I’ve got.
Damp earth and maybe sun tomorrow
and my hands in the dirt beside yours.
Pulling beets in the rain
and the cold water down my neck
and red bulbs against greygreen hills,
saying, yes, like this, days like this.
day after day,
with my hands in the dirt beside yours,
that I’ve got.
