1 Balas, Robert Open 24 Hrs: A Book of Poems by Robert Balas & Paintings by 40 Local Artists About Kings Cross / Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia
Australia Tap Art Gallery 2005 0646453467 / 9780646453460 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
84 pages including colour illustrations. An expression of individual pursuit of poetry and art, but the ideal of co-operation and collaboration has been inherent in the compilation, pre-production and publication through to the launch of this book. From seventy poems, monologues and dialogues, l have selected forty for this collection in order to provide a balance that could evoke a wry smile without attitude, an implicit message that could be interpreted to induce a social awareness with or without conscience, a description of life in a moment or an impression formed from a glance that identifies with the rather unique character of life to be found in these localities. Poetry and art pertain to many dimensions of thought but to find the connection in meanings between the two genres offers yet another reality - a shared reality to which end the projection of this book has been given a priority of focus. In the interest of future collaboration between poets and visual artists, the cross-referential nature of this book seeks either a commonality or a counterpoint with regard to meanings implicit in the written word and those represented in the aesthetic and contextual value of the art. lt invites the observer or reader to find connections between the metaphors and analogies of the poems and the images and symbols of the artwork.
