Programme Note:
...slivers of energy
riding the gusts earthward,
misshapen mirrors shattering with motor-like precision
into fragments of reflection;
snapping knives, translucent razor tongues,
cutting, inserting, prying, pecking, hammering, chiseling,
erupting into shards,
smeared over an earthly canvas;
crisp and clear,
a single blinding glint of tomorrow,
insistent, lingering, entreating, enthralling;
a roiling glaze strewn over eyes
squinting with ecstasy and abandon...
