Michael Behle's "Gazing through themselves"

This is Michael Behle's contribution to the 2009 Poetry Scores Art Invitational, Gazing through themselves (8" x 10" gouache and flashe on panel, 2009).

The title is chosen from The Sydney Highrise Variations by Les Murray, and the work responds to the poem. The piece will be hung in the show depending on where in the flow of the poem the language chosen for the title appears.

This means, given where there titles appear in the poem, Behle will be sandwiched between Amy VanDonsel and Heather Corley. Which is enviable any way you look at it.

The Invitational/silent auction will be held at The Luminary Center for the Arts (located at 4900 Reber Pl. at Kingshighway, just across the street from Tower Grove Park) 6-10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13, with an after-party following just down the block at The Royale.

This part of the poem was scored memorably by Robert Goetz.

The starving spirit is fed upon the heart
(Robert Goetz, Les Murray)

This is Track 13 on the CD we will release at the art opening - dead in the middle of the 25 tracks, in the heart of the score.
