Leguminosae Delusion Athletics by Andy Martrich and Nicole Raziya Fong (The Blasted Tree, 2022)

Leguminosae Delusion Athletics is a collaborative poetry and art project about representative absence. Dynamism is treated as a form of ritual delusion throughout the long poem, composed by Andy Martrich, lingering on the cusp of afflictions that can't be undone. The accompanying art, by Nicole Raziya Fong, draws from cues in the text, corresponding to different sections of the poem and mirroring the disassemblage of apparent forms and figures. The Blasted Tree has produced a limited edition of sixty 7” x 4.75” chapbooks, each dust-jacketed in a full colour, fold-out poster by Nicole Raziya Fong.

7 Series, Iterated by Colour (Hiding Press, 2021)

7 Series, Iterated by Color inhabits the poetics and subjectivity of color perception. Seven images are established and extrapolated upon in an attempt to “speak” color and bring about its phenomenological surfacing. As an amplification of theoretical works centered on color undertaken by Goethe, Schopenhauer and Albers, 7 Series, Iterated by Color inquires into the mechanisms by which subjectivity encounters its mirror image in colour and all it can or cannot empirically reveal about its subject.

Fargone (Poetry Will Be Made By All, 2014)
