In the summer of 2016 I had the pleasure of seeing my poem “Sentinels” published in the pages of The Antigonish Review #186, a literary magazine. That’s an exciting day in any writer’s life, but there was more: the cover of that edition featured a photo of five of my sandstone sculptures, collectively called “Sentinels”.
The methodologies differ vastly between writing poems and carving sculptures, and yet…and yet, they originate in and come out of the same head, heart and hands. I don’t often write poems about my sculptures, nor do I attempt to illustrate a theme I’ve been writing about by carving it. But sometimes they do converge.
And it feels great.
