Jack Walls’ handwritten lyrical prose piece “The Ebony Prick of the White Rose’s Thorn” will be
on display at Fuse Gallery. A sprawling poem laid bare upon scores of sheets of Arches paper
with a watercolor brush and scribed laboriously by Mr. Walls over the past two years. What Mr.
Walls presents in “The Ebony Prick of the White Rose’s Thorn” is a surreal voyage through the
darker recesses of the poetic jungle that is the sublime genius of the mind of Jack Walls. The
prose piece, an epic swirl of hellish visions, disorderliness, and a brutal yet beautiful chronicle of
a young nameless poet’s tragic blaze to ruin, is accompanied by sixteen found black and white
pornographic images illustrating interracial homoerotic sex.

“The Ebony Prick of the White Rose’s Thorn,” by Jack Walls runs January 9 through February
6, 2010, at Fuse Gallery, 93 2nd Ave (between 5th & 6th Sts, 2nd Ave stop on the F), NYC, NY.
The opening reception, on Saturday January 9th, from 7 to 10 pm, is free and open to the public.
