  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

J. Reuben Appelman, Make Loneliness

 

You are distant sufferings of the passive tense, an excerpt as lineage. There are coffee shops in Brooklyn you take as your own, but that’s a parking lot. Here is where I have attempted to say something important, believing myself. Your father was never completed, and in subsequent billings may also have been mailed. In moments I looked for him, in scenarios found nothing. At checkpoints, was questioned as earmark: What is the precise angle of retraction in this poem? What is pepper spray? In some back alley hour, a partial payment?

 

J. Reuben Appelman is a poet, novelist and screenwriter who has worked on numerous projects for film and television including Playground, executive produced by George Clooney, and the children’s adventure film The Five. Appleman is a multiple grant recipient from the Idaho Commission on the Arts and teaches at Boise State University.
