Greetings from the Mojave Desert, John--

Recently discovered your poetry, but having no luck locating your books. Thought I had Phantom of the Apple cornered, but the bookseller who claimed to have a copy couldn't find it in the end.

Thought I'd drop a note to say how much I've enjoyed what I've read. Please do let me know if you can steer me in the right direction re: Phantom of the Apple and/or any of your chaps. Also would like to email about possible book and magazine cover work (small press stuff).

Best,
MDS

Hey John,
I just wanted to let you know that your print Portland 3 from the Emergence show found a home with me. I will enjoy having it around!

Inspiring art works. Vibrant and exciting. What fun!

One wonders where he finds them, these shards of broadsides, tattered remnants of humanity's communications with itself. And one finds one's eyes, one's mind, trying to see beyond the shreds, to connect them into something important, something that once reached out from the cold walls of the cities and said, "Look at me. I am telling you something important." Now though, just the bare bones of those gestures remain, as if a vulture had descended and fed upon their papered flesh. Therein lies the tension of his art.

I spent a good few hours with these images John. Whilst I should have been doing something else it could not have been more important or inspiring. The way that you use the camera is outstanding. You use it the same way that you use words for poetry.

The collection here is very much like your poetry. The form (in this case, posters)determines how the audience view things. You have a very constricting approach to both your poetry and your photography and this is a great thing. You make demands on your audience and force them to confront what is before them; it is rather like giving a child a kaleidoscope with only one colour; thus they have to focus on the shapes the crystals make.

Brilliant John, pure genius.

Well John K., I live in St. Ives, Cornwall, I was also a personal friend of Sir Terry Frost, I also feel he would have been amazed by your work as I was, truly different, and may I say . . . far, far to good to copy, but sadly, it will be, but you were the first,
I found it very calming !

John, every shot is a winner. So glad I can see your work here - especially that killer San Diego shot and those from the Heidelberg show - and tell others about it. You have an amazing eye for capturing the poetry in each view. Keep up the good work!

Congratulations on your life John Kay! As an artist myself, I hold on to my image of you as a beacon, as an example of what an artist does with their life...in the traditon of the influential: Brancusi, Bukowski, Kerouac...Kay.

Beautiful work. -Terry Mulert
