Summary

Themed as a gallery showcasing paintings, "Eve's Influence" features detailed writing that covers the  cycles that are toxic to our growth, the coping that potentially does more harm than healing, and how these things translate throughout time.

 
"Eve", which means “the day or period of time immediately before an event or occasion”, speaks on the feelings of being on the verge of a necessary change, a new reality, or a better space. The first step in doing better is identifying what's wrong, that’s  what influenced these writings. 

 
The feelings of doing so much wrong you become numb to it ( I Didnt Know You Were Dying), or how the constant lust for women is so strong it could be perceived as love (THICKER). The man who grows up unsure of how to deal with emotions due to him being deprived as a child ( Blindfolded Babies). The wavering faith in God ( Jesus,take the wheel), or the places you go to free yourself from anxiety (Islands).

 
These 14 pieces are separate in meaning, but unify in the way that they should be taken in. The few minutes you would take to grasp the full idea of a painting, hang on to these words the same way. Welcome to the gallery!

    Night Became Years is poetry in the sauntering tradition of the flâneur. Stefanik loafers his way over sacred geography and explores his own mixed heritage through the lexicon of Elizabethan canting language. Comparing the terminology of fifteenth-­century English beggar vernacular with a contemporary Canadian inner­-city worldview, the poems in Night Became Years unfold as separate entities while at the same time forming a larger narrative on the possibilities of poetry today and the nature of mixed­-blood identity.

    The Porcupinity of the Stars

    Poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work so compelling is 'Barwin’s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder and the shifting, often perplexing nature of consciousness. His Heisenbergian sensibility honed to a fine edge, the poems in this bright, bold and acutely visual book add a surreptitious intensity and wry maturity to Barwin’s trademark gifts for subtle humour, solemn delight, compassion and invention.
     
    'Between the freaky, funny filmmaker Guy Maddin and author Gary Barwin, Canada is producing some of the most innovative creative works of our time.' – Utne Reader
