Poetry. EFFECTS OF SUNLIGHT IN THE FOG is a poetic meditation on the relationship of the artist to his Art, on the variant conditions that temper seeing; how we see and what is seen. Through consideration on works of artists a series of individual poetic images evolves. Art and poetry as one, on the page. “The spare, image-laden lines of this collectin of ekphrastic poetry make it a memorable treat. Alan Catlin evokes Monet, Whistler, Bonnard, and others in skilled sketches that evoke the paintings and interpret them at once. His precise diction carves word-pictures that mirror the paintings, calling forth and naming their shadows. EFFECTS OF SUNLIGHT IN THE FOG is a delight to read and ponder”–Janet McCann.
