Gene Harris has completed his piece for the Nailed Seraphim Art Invitational, titled "Nailed" and evidently an homage to African power figures.
The Invitational will be held Friday, Nov. 21 at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary, 3100 Sutton Blvd. in Maplewood, Mo.
A copy of “Nailed Seraphim” is available on the poet K. Curtis Lyle’s blog: http://downtownatlantis.blogspot.com/2008/09/nailed-seraphim.html.
The assignment: to make a new piece of art that responds to “Nailed Seraphim” and is named after a verbatim scrap of language from the poem. The work will be displayed and positioned around the space, according to where in the poem the language chosen for the title of the artwork appears.
