Fine Artist of the Month: Painting Meticulous Chemistry: A linked poem for Allen Higbee

Each month I am adding to an on-going series of writings about Fine Artists who have worked, or are primarily working, in the NYC area. This month I write a "linked poem" for the late, Allen Higbee (RIP).

Painting Meticulous Chemistry

The building blocks of paint.

The folding of magazine photography.

To light stars of the canvased sky

To carve the foreign with respect.

There in the battlefields of time.

There in Lowery Field's space.

Touching the matter of Dramatics and Realism.

Touching the Mana of wood and paint.

This New Jersey.

This Man.
