Efrem Zelony-Mindell

In this book something otherworldly is embodied in theory and ideology. The pictures are beautiful and the essays revealed, but what shines through is a commitment to community, discourse, and surrender. This form of surrender is to others’ ideas and others’ instincts, which allows a bigger picture of camaraderie and a new form of self described memorial to those we love to emerge.

Out of the mysteries of the world figures and objects take form; they shine in darkness. A howling racket carves through the shifting of sight and imagery. The world of color is removed from curiosity because it is entrapped in literality. Grays, black and white, silvers—brilliant and pointed— are identified in every language and culture before color is procured.
