I'll tell you all in two hours :-)))X

NBF - thats one of the joys of being a GIRL!!! :-)))! Ok - you guys are so reticent - my visual  artist of choice (for now, but one  for definite! :-))) - - Antonio Sant'Elia.(1888 - 1916) - died aged 26 on the front line first world war.  Anyone else???

Thanks, mom--I wish you'd told me that earlier!

Does anyone consider some of Rauschenberg's combines to be vispo? (This will give me a clue to whether I truly understand what vispo is.)

I hope I understood that the  theme is "Favorite VISUAL ARTIST" (sculptor, painter, etc)

NOT necessarily a "visppo" artist. Correct?

My choice is an visual artist, painter of the 16th century. Is that ok?

"Theme: Create a visual poem or series of visual poems

that are an homage or tribute to YOUR FAVORITE VISUAL ARTIST

(sculptor, painter, collage artist – perhaps even another visual poet)"

I shall create a visual poem in homage to an artist, he/she need not be a visual poet?


That's what I thought also, K., but others talking "vispo artist" got me to wondering too ...

Let's see what the Boss says ;-)

Mine is David Baptiste Chirot

Oy vez! Concept review:

We are doing books of visual poetry. So whether you are an artist, writer, neither, or both - you are creating chapters of visual poetry for the book.

The concept is to do a (visual) "poem" or "poems" that are an homage to a visual artist you admire greatly: painter, sculptor, etc.

I think we were naming favorite visual poets in the thread to establish common ground and provide some examples? Visual poetry has a broad definition but it is a distinct genre (apart from asemic writing and concrete poetry, of course there is overlap)

I also said it seemed entirely appropriate in people wanted to do an homage to another visual poet. Thus, within the confines of the original concept, a chapter about Karl Kempton or Sheila Murphy (or anyone else you like) would be interesting and a nod to visual poetry as a genre.

So if Angie wanted to do a chapter about Matt Stolte, great. If Nancy wants to do a chapter about RR, great. You know, you want to leave it as open as possible yet have some cohesion to the project.

Nancy, I thought about do visual poems about Robert Rauschenberg myself (decided not to). I think it would be a stretch to call him a visual poet. He does use elements of language in his work. We found the same situation with Cy Twombly and asemic writing.

Sorry, spell chick is asleep at the switch again.

Well, DK, that's close to my heart. For me, David's the great visual poet of all time. You've all heard me go on about that. He is a member and has lots of work posted in his portfolio and other places that are great examples to look at. David has had serious health setbacks. He used to be here a lot.

Thanks for the helpful info, DVS. Rauschenberg as a "visual poet"--no, I wasn't thinking that, but wondering if certain of his combines would fall under the vispo category (unless one must do visual poetry exclusively to have any particular work fit the category). That I'm still not sure about.

Robert Nickle, not a visual poet but a huge inspiration to me, may end up being my homage subject.
