Art around campus

Meghan Howland

I don’t want to post multiple examples of her work, because you should go explore her website!

Being in school is not just stimulating because of the teachers I am studying with, but also because of the students on campus.

I pass Meghan’s work and studio regularly on my way to my locker, and I almost always feel compelled to pause to admire her paintings.

Edges

IMG_4627

Drawers of a memory’s bones,
sea shell geodes, sparkling, but not for us, and certainly not to please you.

A well oiled rainbow dancing up a horses woven neck,
trying to dig to you, dig to find treasures, to rebury parts of her for you to
find along your path.

Furred minerals, waxy skinned rocks, carve flesh away to strip-mine her hurts.

Stroke the pet sphinx till she purrs you truths, and remember,
she used to be just a girl, too.

Now she’s made of plastic pony bodies, nylon hair, diary pages and vellum wings.

She’ll claw at you and dig, burrow in your chest,
lock herself in your well oiled drawers, swallow the key and
scrape at your walls with nails of opal and cheap glitter.

You’ve grown lean and the edges you seek are now in your own bones,
sharpened by acetone winds.
