The mob have no mind
Civility, ethics, morals left behind
To allow their righteous anger free rage
Luddites smashing a new age
Inflamed with empty promises and lies
Duped to believe only collateral’s dies
What’s a reactionist to do?©RedCat
When he has to share rights and privileges with me and you?
To see all art and read all poems go to The Wombwell Rainbow.
Marcel Herms A Dutch visual artist. He is also one of the two men behind the publishing house Petrichor. Freedom is very important in the visual work of Marcel Herms. In his paintings he can express who he really is in complete freedom. Without the social barriers of everyday life. There is a strong relationship with music. Like music, Herms’ art is about autonomy, freedom, passion, color and rhythm. You can hear the rhythm of the colors, the rhythm of the brushstrokes, the raging cry of the pencil, the subtle melody of a collage. The figures in his paintings rotate around you in shock, they are heavily abstracted, making it unclear what they are doing. Sometimes they look like people, monsters, children or animals, or something in between. Sometimes they disappear to be replaced immediately or to take on a different guise. The paintings invite the viewer to join this journey. Free-spirited. He collaborates with many different authors, poets, visual artists and audio artists from around the world and his work is published by many different publishers. www.marcelherms.nl www.uitgeverijpetrichor.nl
