  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

Leland Hickman, Tiresias: The Collected Poems of Leland Hickman

 

What may well be the defining trait of Hickman’s work is that it draws deeply from the ritualistic dithhyrambic culture out of which emerged the ambi-gendered figure of Tiresias and the public nature of the personal dilemmas he both endured and was called on to inform. That cultural spring – Hickman’s Tilphussa – is the lense through which the drama that characterizes the ‘Great Slave Lake Sweet,’ for example, might be viewed.

 

Los Angeles poet and editor Leland Hickman (1934-1991) was the author of two collections of poetry: Great Slave Lake Suite (1980), which was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award, and Lee Sr Falls to the Floor (1991). His poetry also appeared in The Hudson Review, Bachy, LA Weekly, Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Little Caesar, Invisible City, Box Car, and the anthology The Streets Inside: Ten Los Angeles Poets. He was the editor of the poetry journal Temblor, which ran for 10 issues during the 1980s. Dennis Phillips’s many books of poetry include Credence, Study for the Ideal City, and Sand. He teaches at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
