“Bold and searching” – BookLife “Gets” and Loves “Particle Pinata Poems”

IN PREMIUM COLOR: BookLife writes: Harrell’s bold and searching collection takes readers on an odyssey of inquiry, with the first and foremost question being 'How to establish that / Yes, I am / One with God and God is / One with You.'

More than you might think. In my mind his artwork was the artbook I didn't work on in 1971 or so. This was the artbook I did. It all went back to that. But let's take the story slowly. 1994.

International Prize New York City

Faces in Sun Blast, a Film (not digital) photograph of a cloud scene, has been selected for the International Prize "New York City" October 21 - 24, 2020. Looking at the cloud photograph, which I took in Belgium in the late 1990s, when I took several rolls of these sky images every day, then sorted out which ones to later have professionally scanned, I see painting-like scenes in patches.
