That's helpful, DVS, thanks!

" I tore pieces from some cash register receipts and twisted them into string-shapes.  I glued them onto the card and overlaid it with orange tissue paper.  I used gel medium over the tissue paper." Brilliant! Thanks for the background on composition - definitely a nice quote too.

Maybe I will take scraps of this conversation and use them to make a poem.

David, someday I will get back to Santa Fe, I swear.

 

DVS, I told Angie that I wanted to write a poem about this piece, but I wasn't quite ready yet.  It's in the gestating phase.  :-)

 

The art/poetry connection has been strong for me since I discovered IUOMA this summer.  I've written probably twenty-five or so poems and placed several for publication here and there.  Many were published along with the artwork that inpired them.  As they say, I have been on a roll.  You have me thinking about metasemics, but with school in session now, I haven't had time to explore it as I would like.  All the ideas are swirling, though, like a great big wind.

 

About the texture:  I tore pieces from some cash register receipts and twisted them into string-shapes.  I glued them onto the card and overlaid it with orange tissue paper.  I used gel medium over the tissue paper.

On the first part of the journey...

And Oz didn't never give nothin to the Tin Man that he didn't already have....

It rained a little this evening, mostly wind....

OK, then if we're digging into this - how did you get those orange textures in the lower portion of the image? This is a piece I'm already coming back to for more. Is this overlaid with fabric or something?

I think there is a real text-image coherence here, which fits the vispo ideas we've been discussing in the collab book group. Theresa, being a writer, I'm thinking you might have captured in this piece how you can construct what is essentially a lyric poem with these materials.

Yes, I was a horse in another life...

Comment by Theresa Ann Aleshire Williams on January 22, 2012 at 7:42am

Bad?  Who said that?  I was merely remembering my horse-days on the sands of Santa Fe.  Ah, how I wish, how I wish I was there.

Puleese...was it that bad? I guess it was...the editing function stops working after 10:30...no exceptions.
