“encaustic/earth/prayer/poem” (00:07:47) by Nik Liguori. USA, 2023
Visionary impressions of a long overdue vernal equinox. A vertiginous and textural tone poem describing the semiotics of spring through lucent, hand-crafted frames. Out of winter’s harsh grasp, some kind of promise grows.
“Still, the profound change/has come upon then: rooted they/grip down and begin to awaken…” -William Carlos Williams, “Spring and All”
My work is concerned with themes of natural, spiritual, and internal environments, using auto-fictional narratives, analog and video work, and handmade objects to imagine spaces for fantasy and personal mythology to converge.
