we’re sniffing fried rainbows and snacking on tadpoles while contemplating underground balloons
can we stop for a moment?
there might be worthy topics that haven’t been flatulent yet
the dogs have waited too long for their chance at being aquanauts
growing weary and teary at the notion of being tried and cried
we loved the tea
just one more plea
please don’t call us again
where do we begin?

Mister Jablow’s art is the best type of provocative. It forces one to reconsider preconceived notions, mostly about morality and cultural norms.
My favorite example of his work is:
Innocuous enough, until he takes it in a wondrously detailed direction:
Whether his work is a commentary on society, or simply a jab at things commonly thought of as banal, it serves the viewer a helping of introspection, and in doing so pointedly wets one’s appetite for more.
freedom within words
fly like birds
wait for the grapes to become wine
pick tomatoes in the sunshine
harbor no ill will
no reason to harm or kill
under each leaf awaits a creature wanting to live
each one ready to learn, grow, and give
These absolutely surreal, yet realistic, sculptures are the reason I love art. Please visit Choi Xooang’s website, and/or make the time to see one of his exhibits.
My daughter is 5 y/o and new to using a computer, but I thought I would share what she made for me. It’s a picture of a unicorn.
