What is Gothic to Blood of Roses?
Gothic is a huge spire reaching to Heaven made of cold mute stone,
Gothic is stained glass: illuminating but leaving much in darkness,
Gothic is immense space, dwarfing the individual yet opening her mind.
What is the Blood of Roses?
Scholasticism and mysticism from the 13th C.,
Fuseli paintings of the 18th C.,
Stûrm und Drang for the 21st C.
A Daydream, a Nightmare, a Romance, a Eulogy;
A place to go and a place to be;
Reflections, Projections, and a Touch
