Statement

Colleen Maloney’s exhibit Finding Comfort reflects the contented happiness she feels when depicting flowers, food, friends and family. In Linda Katz’s companion poems she uses language to create little dramas about each work. Katz’s words heighten our senses and allow us a myriad of ways to interpret each print.

Summertime

Wet bangs and baggy trunks,
scratchy lawn chair on a sun warmed back,
licks of vanilla shivering our tongues.
Beat up old sprinkler nozzle
spurting cold spray,
a watery metronome
punching a rhythm
from a far distant past.
Each swipe rinsing the air
plumes a smell of drenched grass,
a whiff of hot kids,
exuberant chatter joining today
the clickety/clickety/clickety/spray,
clickety/clickety/clickety/spray

– Linda Katz
