I’ve used “A Wave” by Ivan Aiwazovsky as a model. Even if it is a copy, it took 19 years (!) to paint this.


Author: C.C. Arshagra

This poem is Based on at least (3) three events
1.! See the painting A Wave by artist Jarko

2.! The Last months series of Events involving two other on-line communities and (Like the tile infers “The Plagiarism of Amanda Joy’s Poetry’ including may adventures here being inspired and spelling the inspiration out here on RedBubble. It’s really an amazing story of flowering creative courage.

And three (3.!) while writing the poem the image of the painting “A Wave” just slid deeply into me deep and quiet as it just guided the poem’s writing the mysterious whole way.

Thank you Jarko for your 19 years of work inspired by yet another work.
And so, as Jarko states in the images description:

The Plagiarism of Joy’s Poetry (An Ode to the Courage of Art)

(An Ode to the Courage of Art)

The vulnerable risk is eternal for all
Lest the sleep walk of safe dilutions protect you.

The artists are
With the blessed curse to be beyond what is safe

Suffering nothing
And sharing hungry moments somehow satisfied

But a ship at sea we are
And the storms will come and be

Being Alive
As the rocks catch flesh falling

To feed you to the bellies of life
They are all here waiting to choose upon the carnage

Or else, the bacteria you are will come to get you
Nothing is clean

Especially the most pristine holy truths’ polished
And shined daily with rags of fearful hopes in hiding

Buying predators are known here as the civilized people
Holding no mirrors lest the glass reflects outward

Save the art works created so fine here by the lone artists ignored
Whose bones and blood are now here scraped off the street

The Wall Street express bus speeding did not see the artist crossing
The Brokers on board had only moment before the starting bell …

A good thing
The masterpiece was unharmed and there is no will

The auctioneers decide not to say
The price they paid

Yet the creation of arts’ fall goes on and on
Long …

As the breathing lasts

    Amazing work Jarko. I can see why it took so long, the waves are just perfect. The ferociousness and power of the waves can be felt, the depth caught so well. Great work again.

    Great bit of painting. No photo to copy for Turner. He was tied to the mast when he painted his sea scene!! Cheers Neil
