// Rus Khomutoff dreams up the contemporary world into surprisingly familiar cosmic landscapes reminiscent of those suggested by the most idiosyncratic avantgardists—think Artaud, Char, Malraux, Panero, and other moderns unafraid to acknowledge the material quotidianity of mystical experience. Poems in Radia function as un-coders (rather than decoders), allowing the words to shine in their full resplendence while approaching each other artfully, almost naked, in unexpected ways, to take advantage of the oneiric gears hiding everywhere under the apparent simplicity of life – German Sierra //
//Rus Khomutoff’s poetry plumbs the depth of human emotion with a sensually intense and innovative brilliance. With an intellectual and visionary aplomb, his words conjure images that are mercurial, mysterious and malleable in their shaping of the world that surrounds us.
Like a shaman he reveals clandestine aspects of the consciousness housed within physicality’s essence – Ric Carfagna //
