Lee Ka-sing

Woman reading a photo-essay that I collaborated with Ping-kwan after our trip to Poland in 1993

The relationship between a tree and the object behind

(shēng), a Chinese character represents energy and life

When roses became a rock

The sit. The stand

Ten years later

“I asked the bright moon to bring me my shadow and make us three” (Li Bai)

Blue man in the city trying to chat with a sunflower after a long day’s work

The robot. The sun. The water-drops from an advertising billboard

To tailor-make a wide skirt for a nostalgic garden farm

Memories of a city used to have junks with large sail

木心: Autumn - for: 叛逆的兔子,在她的威爾丁和悲傷


It is autumn and I am color-blind, stilled and of some making
and the sky rises
and I soften to meet its lift and strain.


Autumn rises and so too the sounds
not cacophonous as Spring with its defiant raging against grief
but precise and particular in its clarity of temperate things,
the clatter of utensil against your teeth, a pinpoint twang,
the bee's mandible scraping against the wine glass, crisp in its hunger,
the divestment of the afternoon's dew slowly run dry as a sigh,
the grammar of the movement along pavement, when boot meets falling heel,
the tin bucket counting the plummeting drops of rain, easy in their counting,
the elongated cross-country train stalled on the Runneymede bridge
slacking in its rest and soil-wearied sides, the heave countable in late October,
cattle awaiting in line for food and brushing and the shade of crackling temperatures, acalm.

And all that accuracy, all that fingerable surrounding, seasonal intelligibility.
Not romance but fact.
Autumn rises and we hook, imperishably.

Chapter 56

Coal decided to call Linc before Bliss Carmen turned up to reclaim her dog Fish. He answered the phone, but he was way out at the beaches. Coal could hardly hear him over the wind whistling off the lake.
“What’s the shoot?” she asked him.
“Mens’ Windbreakers!” he shouted into the phone. “Lacoste, Fred Perry, Adidas, nothing special.”
“When will you be back?”
“Three, four hours,” Linc told her. “Another two hours here, and an hour trying to buck the traffic home. Why?”
“You remember that Bliss Carmen character? The one who owns Fish?”
“Hard to forget,” bellowed Linc over the tumult of the onshore breezes. “I hope she’s taking Fish home with her?”
“Apparently she is. I’m actually more concerned though about her role in those murder threats the Mayor was getting. It was her lunatic boyfriend that painted them, remember?”
“You think she’s dangerous?”
“Well, I don’t know” said Coal. “I’m pretty anxious about her coming here.”
“I’ll be there as soon as I can,” Linc told her and hung up.
Half an hour later the intercom buzzed.
“What kind of a dumb, pansified place is this anyhow?” roared Bliss into the speaker. “Mr. prettyboy Security guard here seems to think I’m some kind of goddam intruder or something.”.

The Paint Chip Project by Shelley Savor
Exhibit dates Oct. 15-26, 2014
Opening: Sat. 25, 2:00-6:00

The hardware store has endless possibilities for changing your life. Intrigued by the many colours and titles of paint chips, I decided to collect them. These small fields of colour provide the background for explorations of the human condition. Collisions of urban life and nature, emotions spilling over in the living room, the challenge of commuting, adapting to the environment, both interior and exterior, rural and urban, are explored on colour samples such as ‘Golden Raisin’, ‘Sardinia Green’, Blackboard Grey’, and Wisteria Blue.
