VISUAL POETRY
Writer and Illustrator, Evan Robertson
Have your ever heard the earth breathe?
In an interview with The Huffington Post (July 11, 2012), Evan Robertson states, "The best thing about paperbacks (apart from the smell, of course) is that when a little jewel of a sentence grabs you, you can underline it. If you’ve only ever read a book on a screen, then let me explain: Underlining something in your book is the original “interactive” media. Think of it as a hyperlink that redirects to your own thoughts, and like a hyperlink, it can leave the rest of the story behind and open up a new window of ideas, insights, musings."
Mr. Robertson's images are so beautiful and poignant. They bring to mind a scene from the documentary, "What the bleep do we know?", where a brain's synapses are illustrated as lightening storms - rapidly translating thoughts into feeling. In viewing these lovely graphic works, there is a moment of revelation as our lightening storms relax, resolving into meaning.
This is how Mr. Robertson's work imbeds itself into our psyches - as graphic poetry.

It is not drawn in any maps; true places never are.

There is no denying the wild horse in us.

Do I dare disturb the Universe?
