Grant Hackett – Haikoan


Artist statement for his Haikoan

Grant Hackett writes:

The form is three questions. A poetic trigram of questions. Haiku-like in immediacy and terseness. And koan-like in respiring with extra-rational oxygen. Restless with the interplay of possibility within and between three powers. Vehicle of reverie.*
