Still water sows together the tattered contours of the past

"Still water sows together the tattered contours of the past," 24x24in., mixed media on birch panel

How's that for a straightforward populist title? Just doing my part to "Make America Think Again."

I stole it from "Ithaca," by the poet Grigori Dashevsky, a Russian, of course:

Old rags are stronger than old life.
Night, like dead water, sows together
the tattered contours of the past. 
A stranger's death is a seed of your homeland,
sprouting from the graveyard statues,
from the clouds, forever still.

Shows in 2017 are coming together: San Diego, Beverly Hills, Del Mar, Toronto... Check out www.ivanostocco.com for more info.

Have a good one and peace out!
