Part sketchbook, part dreambook,MoreBeauty Strip considers the landscapes and living things of Appalachia, protests the industrialization that leaves ruin in its wake, and celebrates the human capacity to remake, redeem, and find shelters and homes. Part sketchbook, part dreambook, Beauty Strip maps and ruminates on, haunts and is haunted by, the mountaintop removal sites and mill towns, the salt-works and bloomeries, that have scarred the land from West Virginia to Virginia to Tennessee.Our Lady of the MillsThe painter dodges the filthy clumps,despises their chilblained faces,rabbit-eyes, broken teeth.

He easesinto the stone church, the one workhe will give them: the virgin, charcoal-lined,comfort for the people in their hoursat the furnace and the spools.With paregoric and tonic bitters,he endures the church’s stained light,cold arches, and eye-sockets. Empty,unpainted, the dreadful ovals will tellwhat she felt when she touched her son,cool and rigid as marble awaiting the chisel,pale as threadbare muslin, spilt cream.
