one trick pony

jason and i went to the BSU art students’ senior exhibit tonight. such a great time. and it made me realize that i’ve been away from school long enough now that i miss it and could easily go back at this point. it was cool getting to see a few people i had classes with (there’s a lot of crossover between the art and english departments). it felt so familiar and fun being there.

our friend liz was exhibiting her work, “Eat me, Drink me, Love me, Abuse me, Shock me, Thrill me, Fool me, Devour me.” i love the facial expressions and the motion and energy of the piece.

here’s her artist statement.

and here’s lovely liz looking ultra-cute as always.

j’s friend willow was also exhibiting. her piece is “The Spectator’s Feast”--very captivating. the artist statement is a must-read:

here’s a closer look:

a few more things that caught my eye...

Song of the Rose
For Zeus chose us a King of the flowers in his mirth,
He would call to the rose, and would royally crown it;
For the rose, ho, the rose! is the grace of the earth,
Is the light of the plants that are growing upon it!
For the rose, ho, the rose! is the eye of the flowers,
Is the blush of the meadows that feel themselves fair,
Is the lightning of beauty that strikes through the bowers
On pale lovers that sit in the glow unaware.
Ho, the rose breathes of love! ho, the rose lifts the cup
To the red lips of Cypris invoked for a guest!
Ho, the rose having curled its sweet leaves for the world
Takes delight in the motion its petals keep up,
As they laugh to the wind as it laughs from the west.
