Staring into the blankness

I’m thrilled to announce the official publication of my first book, ContrapuntalYou can find out more and order a copy by clicking on the book’s new page up top. I won’t have author copies for another few days, so this all feels surreal.

Nevertheless, I want to give a huge shout-out (are people still saying things like this?) to the incredible artist and human being Robyn O’Neil, whose beautiful work graces the cover of Contrapuntal as well as the header of this site. I first fell in love with her work when I saw it at the Folk Art Museum in New York as a part of the exhibit “DARGERism: Contemporary Artists & Henry Darger.” I remember the humungous canvas of her piece “These final hours embrace at last; this is the ending, this is the past” overwhelming me with awe.

Please visit her site to view more of her work.
