James Walton Fox
My work is a continual attempt to erase the boundary between Human Nature and The Environment.
I see Poetry as the fundamental source of habitable reality and a symbol of the ordering dynamics of creation. Poetry is a symbol of the beautiful mystery of breath.
It is the province of art to integrate the moral perfections and the commodified labor of humankind into a tangible emotional experience of Nature.
The work of the artist is to balance these labors into an experience of contemporary eternity, whereby everyone, the initiate and the novice alike, may touch the pure unity of life.
I speak of Nature not as the antithesis of humanity, but Nature as Dante's "love that moves the stars." : Nature as Emerson's "sanctity that shames our religions, and reality that discredits our heroes" : Nature as Buddha Nature.
