Studies of the Anonymous
Cryptic immobility, in black white.
Indistinct, seen as through a glass darkly,
in contrasts of shade and light. Abstracted
visuals, drawings of sculptured movement,
hazy impressions of the episodes of life.
Studies of the anonymous, single figures
in penciled outline, solitary maquettes
frozen in time, alone with their thoughts.
(inspired by Seurat’s penciled portraits)
