(YOU CALLED ME HOG)
a poem by Florine Stettheimer

You called me hog
You took me in hand
You cured me with sweetness
You gave me taste
You changed me completely
Even my name
You called me Ham

This exhibition is nine works. It is three times three. Part one of at least three. In this part, as the three push on and pull off, they look, they consider their affinities and their conflicts, they tease their fractious symmetry. There is a shuffling dance to recommit the balance in their reflections, to adjust for change. Unknown, as yet, to the three: reflection is a Liar.
