Turning Back The Biblical Clock
Fay Grajower’s “reset the clock” is a mixed media collage with ink on layered paper, with an accompanying poem. The palette is mostly yellow, purple and black, with some blue, white and red. Floral patterning occupies two of the paper’s corners, and with the exception of a watch face in the lower right corner, the work evokes a cubist still life. The poem is worth quoting in full, because it is almost a painting itself:
reset the clock
there is no chronology
in some order
a beginning and an end
seder – order
flies right by
when did something happen?
time – order
if we could only
Fay Grajower’s “reset the clock.”
