Description The Other Sky de Bruce Bond:
In a unique collaboration, "The Other Sky" presents a dialogue between poet and painter. Bruce Bond's poems probe and respond to the haunting and mysterious paintings of Aron Wiesenfeld. By virtue of the power and refinement of the images and poems, "The Other Sky" creates a symbiosis larger than either medium alone.I cannot sing my way into your child'ssuffering. I try. And the music of tryinggoes speechless in the woods between us.Let me try again.
