Book of collected poems by Bennet Schlesinger illustrated by artist Aidan Koch. This collection is written in diaristic format; an exploration into Breath, syntax and grammar. The book is a collaboration between friends; Koch selected poems from Schlesinger's collection to illustrate. The result is an intimate and tender offering to readers.
Bennet Schlesinger’s (b. 1987 Costa Mesa, CA) practice spans fluidly between ceramics and poetry. His work has been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions at Sebastian Gladstone, LA; Karma, Amagansett; SIGNAL, Brooklyn; AND NOW, Dallas; and others. Writing in a diaristic style, this work explores the landscape between frank honesty, the surreal and self actualization. This is his first published work.
Aidan Koch's (b. 1988 Seattle, WA) work fluidly navigates illustration, comics, and installation, often gravitating towards themes of inter-being with humans, their non-human cohabitators, and the landscapes they are situated in. She's published six graphic novels, exhibited internationally, and founded the Institute for Interspecies Art and Relations. She lives and works in Landers, California, on unceded, ancestral Serrano land with three dogs, two doves, and one other human.
