Matt Connors
A Bell is a Cup 

A Bell is a Cup has been published by Rainoff to coincide with the exhibition Impressionism
by Matt Connors, held at MoMA PS1. Alongside texts by Peter Eleey, Michel Leiris, Gertrude Stein and Jack Spicer, the publication presents the first comprehensive gathering of Connors' work to date. In his essay, Eleey writes that Connors' paintings "bear traces of one another, but they also sometimes prop each other up or lean into each other, as if to physically reinforce, in painterly terms, Jack Spicer’s ideas about the interdependence of poems. 'There is really no single poem,' Spicer came to believe; he argued that 'poems should echo and re-echo against each other.'"
