This image almost assembled itself, insistent, quiet, always at my elbow, whispering, gathering, suggesting until I stepped back and let it create itself – collecting the small component images sometimes seemed like stuffing nuts into a sock. The figure of the dancer beneath the moon seemed too obvious but when I took it out the image relaxed and flowed apart as it its strings had been cut. The idea of evocation or ceremony being conducted in a nocturnal landscape littered with obscure visual associations relates to the period of convalescence I’m enjoying that will be completed by the end of summer. I didn’t make the mistake of looking this gift horse in the mouth, enforced quiet and detachment from the world is not a bad thing, especially for an artist digging within himself for new wellsprings of material and inspiration… Printed at 40 X 60

Oleg Ferstein That's what's came up whilst I was watching this! Evocation and provocation by poetry of Borges. "A Compass" in particular!

All things are words of some strange tongue, in thrall
To Someone, Something, who both day and night
Proceeds in endless gibberish to write
The history of the world. In that dark scrawl
Rome is set down, and Carthage, I, you, all
And this my being which escapes me quite,
My anguished life that's cryptic, recondite,
And garbled as the tongues of Babel's fall.

Beyond the name there lies what has no name;
Today I have felt its shadow stir the aim
Of this blue needle, light and keen, whose sweep

Homes to the utmost of the sea its love,
Suggestive of a watch in dreams, or of
Some bird, perhaps, who shifts a bit in sleep.

J.L. Borges

Tina Fiorenza This is another of your work does not go unnoticed, I first look at the image and then I read what you write in order to understand your intent and if I can figure out.
Altogether eyes that emerge seem to watch you, I like the middle part, almost an altar that rises to the moon and the Showgirl makes him homage with her dance, projected towards it.

I wish you well Jared.

Dana Winkelman Finally, some time to spend with Jared and his wild ride/rumpus. I always try and interpret your images before I read your commentary. My eye was drawn to that dancer like a magnet and at first I found it jarring. But the more I considered it, the more it felt right, like a celebration of the chaos that holds the world together. Reading your comment, I can see your dilemma during the creation but you made the right choice. The other pieces that anchor the image for me are the face of Buddha (calm in the chaos), the small figure in the door near Buddha (curiosity), and the cupped hands on the right (an offering). That is my two cents worth. I really like it. All the best. Dana...
