An artist/poet collaboration that is the flipside of 2006’s Stigmata Errata EtceteraReversing their roles in 2006’s Stigmata Errata Etcetera, Star Black serves as poet, and Bill Knott takes on the role of artist. Bill Knott’s colorful, mischievous, semi-abstract paintings compliment Star Black’s meditations on love and relationships, as well as the divide between what time holds captive and what eludes time. In Velleity’s Shade the temporal collides with the imagined and the passing years become a confluence of queries, shifting views, odd inventories, and light-hearted challenges as if time were a rocking-chair on a flying carpet and turbulence was nothing to fret about.
