Liam O'Gallagher, the artist and sound poet

an ARTSJOURNAL weblog ArtsJournal Home AJ Blog Central Main December 16, 2007 Liam O'Gallagher, R.I.P.
Our old friend Liam O'Gallagher, the artist and sound poet, checked out on Dec. 4 in Santa Barbara, Ca. He had a good run, though. He turned 90 in October. Coincidentally, the date of his death is almost the same (it's off by a day) as that of Sri Aurobindo, the yogi master whose teachings he greatly admired.
(E.g.: "An inch of experience goes farther than a yard of logic."
"The example is more powerful than the instruction."
"Yoga means a change of consciousness; a mere mental activity will not bring a change of consciousness, it can only bring a change of mind.")
Liam was buried in Santa Barbara. He is survived by Robert Rheem, his partner of 58 years.

  1. I am sure in my heart that Liam lived a very rich, full life.

    My thoughts go out to his Robert.

    Love and peace,
