Lisa Gill's poetic subversions never neglect the art, humility, compassion, care & choice, hence her presentation on Guerrilla Literature @ 516 Arts yesterday afternoon. Check out the Street Arts exhibition. Loved Thomas C. Haag's alter-mythologies (see above).

I can't tell you how much poetic subversion I see in this art. It reminds me of the Geico TV commercial where the lion and the zebra was cozying up for drinks at the local watering hole. It's the Book of Revelation forecast that the lion will lie down with the lamb. And now I see the science that makes it work -- DNA gimmickry where all species are one, with the U.S. flag comfortable resting just left of center..

The "poetic subversions" referred mainly to Lisa Gill's presentation. However, Haag's use of ordinary materials like acrylic house paint and recycled materials--a do it yourself ethic--to create alternate mythologies reminded me of avant garde musician Sun Ra, who created alter-mythologies based on ancient black Egypt. I suppose I see more complicated patterns than interspecies harmony and flag-waving.
