Sonnet N.XX by Pablo Neruda

Poema N. 20. Oil on Canvas,2010
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
Sonnet 20 by Pablo Neruda, Chilean Poet.
Write, for example, 'The night is shattered
and the blue stars shiver in the distance.'
The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.
Through nights like this one I held her in my arms.
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.
She loved me, sometimes I loved her too.
How could one not have loved her great still eyes.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.
To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.
What does it matter than my love could not keep her.
The night is shattered and she is not with me.
This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.
My sight searches for me as though to go to her.
My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.
The same night whitening the same trees.
We, of that time, are no longer the same.
I no longer love her, that's certain, but how I loved her.
My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing.
Another's. She will be another's. Like my kisses before.
Her voice. Her bright body. Her infinite eyes.
I no longer love her, that's certain, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.
Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
my soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.
Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer
and these the last verses that I write for her.

Lost paradise at The Westport Arts Center

“Lost Paradise”
My work is a meditation combining personal and cultural history on utopian dreams in two parts: landscape and metaphoric abstraction. My abstract landscapes are environments of mental habitation filled with icons that either I have adopted or developed. My work combines personal histories, ghosts, and gods that have engendered and perhaps abandoned these environments. My images range from the obvious to the eccentric, and the social to the personal, to purposely create a new, ambiguous reality.My work goes across a spectrum of concepts and stylistic approaches. It walks from narrative to purely abstract; from stones and trees to nests and migrating birds; from drawing to dripping without concern, from individual feelings to general concepts. It may seem a bit scattered, but with scrutiny the common threads binding the work together become apparent.My body of work titled Lost Paradise becomes an area layered in concepts of ideas, texture, and color. Paradise is the place we will always look for, but we will never find, as answers to enigmatic questions.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 23 from 6:30-8:30pm.
