Literary Nonfiction. Art. FLOWER POWER is a collaboration between AC Books and Foxy Production, NYC. It documents the poet Paul Maziar's studio visit with the artist Srijon Chowdhury during the COVID pandemic and the unforgettable connection that emerged from their conversation. The two connect about the power of symbols and the elusive nature of meaning in art, the fragility of life and the natural world. "Flowers, nature will always come back," Chowdhury says, "no matter what happens."
Paul Maziar is the author of two books of art writings, ONE FOOT IN THE OTHER WORLD and FLOWER POWER, as well as a handful of chapbooks of poems including To The Air, a collaboration with artist Cynthia Lahti (Cooley Gallery); New Kind of Neighborhood, a collaboration with Sam Lohmann (Great Fainting Spells); and Little Advantages (Couch Press). He's the proprietor of Breather Editions and, alongside Aaron Simon, editor of Ergo Press.
