Entry to Laura McCoy’s chapbook passes through two gratings. The first, the cover, closely side-by-side faint gray lines. The second, seven Xs that assembled resemble chain-linked fence. Onward abstract forms are seen run to seed, then nothing, then the birth of a smear, flows of light, unpainted paint, nothing, flows of light, gathering form. This work traces steps in the mystery past the gate to our morphogenetic instincts and their materials. Return to this work to renew your question.
