Interchange

Brent Wong: Abandoned Works 1970-2008


1

into
the silence
of space

the level
crossing bell
train horn

sudden
rumble
of rails


2

deep space
silence

acrylic
on board


3

the centre
off-centre

glows


4

scapes
from the ground up

alluvial soils
of the Puketoka
Formation

stiff to very stiff
silty clays
and clayey silts

the sky is
infinitely porous


5

Joseph
Mallord
William
Turner

James
Abbott
McNeill
Whistler

painters
of the indefinite


6

or is that
mallard

(this maritime
climate)


7

you enter a place
four walls

a floor
and a ceiling

where the weather
is separate
