Galia Admoni – Gallery
From one space to the next, the paintings become emptier.
In one, a woman is bleeding. I want to touch it with
my tongue; berry red, ripe, wet lips on dry summer skin.
The sculptures are unmoving, with faces that
are starting to turn, like sour milk stones.
I worry that you’ll turn next.
In the last gallery we visit,
the fruit is moulding gloriously.
I will eat strawberries in sunshine again / I will never again visit your fields.
