kind words from reader and fellow artist Eve Turek …
“In Passion and Grace, Gordon Fox Kreplin offers the reader a rich feast of wonder for the senses and the soul. An internationally acclaimed classical musician and photographer, Gordon brings an acute sense of rhythm to this work, from the steady metronome of the seeker’s heart to the soft swish of a lapping wave and the syncopation of street lights, filtered through leaves in a fall breeze.
This is work meant to be savored slowly. Gordon has paired his imagery with his words. Each leans in to support the other, like a fine wine with a meticulously prepared meal. Each sip, each morsel both nourishes and whets the appetite for more. Here the bread and the cup appear through extraordinary sensitivity to the beauty in seemingly ordinary moments, elevated to sacred ground. Here is call and response at its best.
Passion and Grace is a work I will return to again and again, when I need respite from the world’s weariness, when I need reminding to bring my own best to the world’s challenges, and when I need guidance to find the next right step.”Eve Turek
