MFA Alum Heather Lang on Microexpressions: Poet Richard Siken & Painter Bob Ross
Fairleigh Dickinson University MFA alum Heather Lang explores Copper Canyon poet Richard Siken and Joy of Painting painter Bob Ross at Queen Mob’s Teahouse. Heather, who is particularly interested in interdisciplinary explorations, writes:
Siken, like Ross, does much with little. While Ross could start and finish an oil-painted landscape during his thirty-minute show, Siken, within his mere 10-lines, illustrates our world, from the “Detail of the Woods” to the “long nights moon” and back, and all of the loss and longing, and perhaps even hope, that these symbols quietly imply.
