a trip to the world of poemics
great to see your work here! the grey strip down under looks like asemic writing!
great work here....!
Thanks - the grey strip is an upside-down picture of people walking on a frozen lake, but asemic writing works for me!
Hi Camille: This is a strangely beautiful, powerful piece. I know you mentioned on your blog that the two faces might refer to breast cancer. I read them as twin souls, two spirits that are otherworldly familiars, somehow uplifting, spirits of the wings...or something like that...which offer the traumatized skinless muscle-face some consolation, while at the same time being masks, expressionless and beyond human emotion. However one reads it, a powerful piece. Thanks for sharing it.
Thanks, Gary, I like your reading of it very much. I hesitated to say (on my blog) what I thought the collage might have meant to me subconsciously b/c that might impose an interpretation on the viewer. A reminder that biographical events, can limit (or at least bias) instead of broaden the field of play in that work. That kind of private meaning (such as the breast cancer) is only one possibility, though it might be richly significant to the artist.
