RIP Jordan Belson...

I distinctly recall when and where I first read about Jordan Belson's work (South Georgia, in the ancestral bedroom, probably around 1970, in the Underground Film paperback), and when and where I was sitting when I watched Re-Entry for the first time (in the home of Miami Beach artist Charles Recher, early 1991). Belson's work will have lasting influence, and the news of his death is occasion not for sadness but for joy - his work was rarely prosaic, and often wondrous...
