An Artist's Dream- The Intangible IT

The intangible IT
Is what you can imagine beyond these utterances.
You have to hear IT,
Rather than mere words that cannot do justice to a feeling.

I am the epitome of vocabularic seduction
Capable of inciting an emotional revolution.
The elusive IT
I am here to humbly try and deliver it.

Experimenting with words and my new passion- Poetry.

I have actually discovered a poet I identify with- Fernando Pessoa- the guy would have been a total hippy, had you stuck him in the 80's- Post punk England , traveller chill, in search of spiritual sth- Johnathon Livingstone Seagull and Vera Stanley Alder were my guides.

The Party .

What do you do? (What a lame question my eyes scream.)
Are you an artist?
I don't call myself anything
Other people do.

So you need a definition of me,
So you can put me and slot me.
Or does it feel safer to know,
Who you think I am?

(Gerry Aldridge 2015)

The Creative Impulse.

For all of my exhibitions, I have had poetry and song included- Now that I have discovered Fernando Pessoa- me, who never had the guts to seriously write poetic verses that create cathartic moments for fear of being weak, the next exhibition will be a tribute to Fernando Pessoa and the freedom he has given me.
People say I do too many things.
But there is so much to do.
Never get good at one thing, if you have your fingers in many pies.
But, the seduction of creativity is that it is spontaneous, takes control.
Take me over.

Hora Absurda.

Drunk. Full.

Drunk. Full. /fu:l/.
Not a single drop of wine
Has passed these lips of mine.

We don't only cry when we are sad.

We don't only cry when we are sad- it doesn't only rain when things are bad x

Why Does God Look After ME?

Do we really have to believe in God for it to work? That is what they tell us and I always hated them for that- but what if it is true?
Well, do not get too comfortable- If this is so, then that signifies that God is not a friend, but a source of energy to be tapped into- rather cruel considering that if you do not find your way you are stuffed. If God is just energy, there is no essence and therefore it is nothing more than a tool.
Not knocking it, hell of a powerful tool, if we learn how to weild it- I think religion is blanketing the true potential of what we can be- Gerry Aldridge.

When music becomes you.

I have discovered a musician that has moved me.
When music beats in time with your heart, you know it has reached your soul- it happened to me x
