Naked Night: Impressions of the Heart represents a milestone of reflection on coming of age, revealing a witty and astute sense of humour that betrays a surprising depth of maturity. Arising from a native and embodied spirituality, Naked Night reveals much but hides even more. Within an artful wordcraft, impressionism is combined with postmodernism, while romanticism is tethered with minority ghetto realisations. All the while we journey with a soulful character who is at once mystified, then confounded, here awakened, and later despondent and alone. This narrative journey represents the human spirit seeking to rescue some meaning from the harshness of intimacy and alienation. The naked darkness of the soul illumines this work, providing a metaphor that guides us toward a sacred art. Then love opens the soul, leaving us vulnerable, we can hardly speak. We find refuge in the night.
