About this project
With your COMPASSIONATE PARTICIPATION, we will shortly deliver for publication the SUBVERSIVELY CABALISTIC collaborative art & text collection entitled SUBJECTS with OBJECTS.
The OUTPOURING of YOUR COMBINED RESOURCES will allow for the PRINTING of THIS LUMINOUS TOME in sufficient quantity to make the PER COPY RETAIL PRICE OF THE BOOK but a trifle, so that THOSE WHO GREATLY DESIRE IT will at last be able TO POSSESS IT. Imagine, a book that is at once BEAUTIFUL, UNCANNY & AFFORDABLE!
A FUNDAMENTAL EXPOSITION UNVEILING the Subjects With Objects BOOK PROJECT.
The fruit of long collusion between SHADOWY PUBLIC SPACES PAINTER Jonathan Richter & ephemeral poet and song lyricist DKM, SUBJECTS with OBJECTS is a penetrating, soothing, UNSETTLING, WITTY & INEXPLICABLE blending of off-kilter, spontaneous, stream-of-consciousness PAINTED PORTRAITS with counterintuitive, poetic, prosey, PENETRATING, CABALISTIC TEXT.
This radiantly alluring, 118-page, HARDCOVER, FULL-COLOR volume will contain the ENTIRE MUSTER of 2 past Gallery Shows: "The Empty Space Is A Message" & "First Day In Purgatory." And SOMEWHERE WITHIN ITS PAGES, DEAR READER, YOU WILL LIKELY FIND YOUR SOUL's VISAGE PORTRAYED & your DEEPEST SECRETS laid bare. Such is the odd nature of this book, that its contents are kin to the mingled offspring of a GARGOYLE and an ICON!
Below are sundry samplings of the works bound within the covers of SUBJECTS with OBJECTS, displayed here that you might more easily determine the level of your participation in the project ONCE YOU STAND FULLY CONVINCED of the INDEFINABLE NECESSITY of OWNING A COPY!
A Short Treatise ILLUMINATING THE EXISTENCE of Subjects With Objects GREETING CARDS.
Additionally, and for your personal use, we are creating a set of four (4) STUNNING but USEFUL Subjects With Objects greeting cards. Designed as an aid for the individual caught in the unintended position of having to ARTICULATE DIFFICULT BUT NONETHELESS NECESSARY SENTIMENTS, these SwO greeting cards are designed to divide soul from spirit. Order quickly, SO THAT YOU CAN BE CERTAIN TO HAVE THEM NEAR AT HAND IN YOUR HOUR OF NEED!
A Brief Commentary HERALDING THE AVAILABILITY of Subjects With Objects ART PRINTS.
For those who prefer pondering enigmatic artifacts AFFIXED TO THE WALLS, we are delighted to offer a series of stunning, limited-edition art prints based on select pieces from the SUBJECTS with OBJECTS series.
These high-quality 18" x 24" art/text prints will be created in limited runs of 100 SIGNED & NUMBERED copies, perfect for displaying in those nooks and cubbies where you most wish to elicit spontaneous and sacramental responses of GIDDINESS, REGRET, DEEP ACHE, REPENTANCE, HOPE & LONGING from your house guests!
An Ephemeral REVELATION CELEBRATING THE OFFERING of ORIGINAL Subjects With Objects GALLERY PIECES!
Finally, BECAUSE LIFE IS SHORT & REFLECTION NECESSARY, we are offering for permanent adoption THE ORIGINAL GALLERY PIECES THEMSELVES in order that others might also be shaped by prolonged exposure to their INTANGIBLE, TRANSFORMATIVE qualities.
Box-framed with accompanying text etched into gallery-quality mounted metal plates, these paintings will INFORM, DIRECT & DELIGHT not only you, but also those lucky designees in subsequent generations who will one day assume proprietorship of the work(s) in accord WITH THE DICTATES OF YOUR WILL!
Original pieces will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and selection is limited to remaining inventory. To verify availability of a specific piece, please contact us BEFORE CHOOSING THIS FUNDING LEVEL!

Risks and challenges
The paintings are painted.
The text is written.
Still, it is not entirely impossible that we might encounter obstacles in the printing process due to one or more of the following:
•FERAL CATS giving birth to their blind and tawny young deep within the inaccessible removes of the printing machinery.
•DRUNKEN PRESS OPERATORS who insert photocopied pages of their exposed hindquarters into the book, thereby ruining the ESSENTIAL PURITY OF THE TEXT.
•ARMAGEDDON. Not as devastating to the printing operation as FERAL CATS, but significant nonetheless.
•The GHOSTS OF OLD PRINTERS. Not pretend ghosts (which are usually of little consequence anyway), but REAL ONES that have the ability to FREEZE A MAN WITH THEIR GAZE and sunder his sanity with their HIGH-PITCHED CLICKS & WHISTLINGS.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
