After Brice Marden – A Poem by Mary Shanley

Poetry by Mary Shanley

Brice Marden’s lines,
like the uncomplicated flow
of the invisible Tao,
moves in and out of space,
with paint and a steady hand.

He found release from the relentless
drive to force form and now
he simply paints distilled quietude,
fluid lines, graceful composition.
