Henry Gallery Attendants have gotten contemplative in the Henry exhibition Richard Misrach: On the Beach, and would like to share some of their writings with Hankblog. Thanks, GA’s!

Get inspired this week, come and check out the exhibition before it closes on Sunday!

On the Beach | By Joanna

Am I part of the beach?

Breezy

warm

peaceful.

Rolling in the sand.

Carefree

soft

comforting.

I blend in.

Natural

Calm

Alive.

On the Beach, Untitled #704-03 | By Hannah

Being Absent – sorrowful, anxious, lonely.

Where am I?

Missed, fleeting, lost.

I am erased: Wiped out, removed, gone.

Whose absences do long shadows mourn for?

On the Beach, Untitled 394-03 | By Jennifer

Drifting in the warm waters,

floating, breathing, calming.

I feel at home,

happy, safe, free,

I am one with the water,

at ease, at peace, at home.

Can I stay here forever?
