Van y vienen sin saber a dónde. Creen tener el mapa… en realidad están perdidos. Son esclavos de una realidad ilusoria. Son almas muertas en cuerpos vivos.

Jorge Luis Borges

The Art of Poetry
To gaze at a river made of time and water
and remember that Time is another river.
To know we stray like a river
and our faces vanish like water.

To feel that waking is another dream
that dreams of not dreaming and that the death
we fear in our bones is the death
that every night we call a dream.

To see in every day and year a symbol
of all the days of man and his years,
and convert the outrage of the years
into a music, a sound, and a symbol.

To see in death a dream, in the sunset
a golden sadness, such is poetry,
humble and immortal, poetry,
returning, like dawn and the sunset.

Sometimes at evening there’s a face
that sees us from the deeps of a mirror.
Art must be that sort of mirror,
disclosing to each of us his face.

They say Ulysses, wearied of wonders,
wept with love on seeing Ithaca,
humble and green. Art is that Ithaca,
a green eternity, not wonders.

Art is endless like a river flowing,
passing, yet remaining, a mirror to the same
inconstant Heraclitus, who is the same
and yet another, like the river flowing.

Sophia Narrett 's Embroidered Works Recreate The Texture In her embroidered paintings,
 Sophia Narrett turns seemingly mundane moments into visually stunning contemplations of life achieving transcendence into the sublime. The Rhode Island based artist’s background in painting is quite apparent itself in her work.

Her embroidered paintings are bold in color and rich in texture immediately attracting one’s eye. Her paintings may appear cheerful and even whimsical at first but as one gives a hard look to the texture and color, one unravels multiple layers of meaning within the works that display a profound sense of consciousness and contemplation of existence. Narrett manages to produce an almost dreamlike quality in her work that further emphasizes the surreal undertones that are present.
