Art by Anthony Perez Ø Poetry by Yuan Hongri
(Translated by Manu Mangattu)
I live in the very eyes of the stone
I am the light of the light,
The core of the universe.
Out of water and fire I emerge
Yes, churning water, turning fire.
There was a time, in black and white, when
The space of the galaxy was resplendent with colours.
The world is a book of dreams
The city of the future is above the clouds.
The prehistoric giants thence I saw
They are solemn as mountains
Living in the city of gold, transparent in body,
Synchronous with the sun and the moon and the stars.
The Coast of Time
In the pink and white golden words
Of the day outside the garden of gods
Is the hometown of thy soul.
Far before the world was born
The prehistoric giants in gold
Engraved the epic of times to be born
To tell thee, from outer skies the city of the giant
Will once again come to the coast of time.

“I am originally form Southern California but now reside in the BEAUTIFUL city of SEATTLE.I have always been entertained by how an assortment of markings on a surface can ignite others to project their own feelings and ideas of what it all means.I prefer to work with a black ballpoint pen on a sheet of paper but have recently starting using acrylic paint to add some color to my life.I build my line work to flow so I hope it causes the eye of the viewer to not only follow these lines, without question, but allows for interpretation without criticism.Shit. I dont even know what it all means…I just arrange lines in patterns that suit the need. “
