    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Ray DiPalma, The Ancient Use of Stone: Journals and Daybooks, 1998–2008

 

There’s nothing here to be measured
– simply take your share. Pensa, lettor.
The rift in perspective – a record of intuitive endeavors
serendipitous at the graft – limned by the eye.
Blood on the chain, a form of motion
written in black and blue, the body means to go back.
Verticals stagger and extend the spiral
– resisting the pull of gravity, slicing
a disputed form into gestures. Said
– to be – said to be, seen. Said to be.
Argot, hieroglyphics, and the play of appearances,
micromass of all sorts. Tilt of lens,
shape and angle of mirror, light caught in the bevel
from the torch of Phlegyas. Prenda, lettor.

Born in New Kensington, Pennsylvania in 1943, Ray DiPalma received his BA from Duquesne University and his MFA from the University of Iowa. From 1968–1975 he taught poetry at Bowling Green University and moved to New York in 1975. Author of more than forty books of poetry, DiPalma has also published many editions of visual work, including one-of-a-kind artist’s books, sound texts, collages and prints. Among his earlier published collections are January Zero (1984), Raik (1989), Numbers and Tempers (1993), Hôtel des ruines (1993), Provocations (1994), Le tombeau de Reverdy (1998), Letters (1998) and Gnossiennes (2005). His most recent books include L’Usage ancien de la pierre (Editions Greges, 2007), Quatre poèmes (Editions Comp’Act, 2006; both translated by Vincent Dussol), and Caper (with Paul Vangelisti; ML & NLF, Piacenza, 2006). He lives in New York City and teaches at the School of Visual Arts.
