Mixed Media #1
Artist unknown. Style of Susan Watts.
Acrylic and fabric on canvas. 50 cm x 50 cm.
An overlaying patch of coarse cloth
coloured with a tangled thatch
of dark filaments bleeds
into surrounding fleshly tones.
A vertical rent in the fabric reveals
glistening folds of surrendered self
rendered in the deepest rose of longing.
In this rift of deft abstraction between
parentheses of sundered cloth,
where ingress and egress coagulate,
tint and texture interweave the strands
of origin and destiny with threads
from the chambered heart of mystery.
