deadline painter

The show opens Nov. 12, but I don't know when I have to get it to the
gallery. I am thinking of making a poem scroll on a ten foot piece of
canvas I found. Its 28 inches wide. It will probably be 3 or 4 word
squares. I've been doing studies. I write with masking tape.
I have spent much of my time reading Plato's Republic. In Plato's
opposing Homer to Pythagoras, Homer could be regarded as a
representational, "figurative" artist, and Pythagoras an abstract,
"conceptual" artist. More on this misreading of mine later.
