De Villo Sloan on ReDux Arts Magazine Online

MARCH ON REDUX: We exhibit the work of De Villo Sloan. Identifying himself as a a visual poet, De Villo has been very active in mail-art, visual poetry and zines since the 1980s. Early influences were concrete poetry associated with ‪#‎Fluxus‬ and the work of Black Mountain poets.

Sloan's underground classic Ourang-Outang, first published in 1986 and recently reissued in 2013, includes some of his earliest examples of concrete poetry, asemic writing, vispo and experimental poetry. Some consider it to be a roadmap to all of his later efforts. He is also the publisher and editor of the ‪#‎zine‬ MinXus-Lynxus.

To see his work all during the month of March, follow the link below:

Thank you Ruud! I glitched trying to appropriate Rain Rein's Shirley Temple.

retreived the text from DVS :

Thanks ltvs for being so instrumental in making me the Redux magazine featured artist in March. I guess I'm ready for my acceptance speech and my close up.

I have used Rain Rein Nevermind's icon thing of Shirley Temple as image support for my acceptance speech. Rain Rein would have made a great Redux artist, if he were still with us.

I have been a Redux fan for some time - that is the truth. It's a great zine, and people should check it out.

To join other IUOMA friends (not to mention many other talented artists) who have been Redux featured artists is an honor and thrill. I am proud to join Eduardo Cardoso, Diane Keys, and TIC TAC.

I don't think I can generate the cyber-riot caused by DK's glitch pieces. But that could be a good thing.

I commend Redux for showcasing the work of emerging and as yet not so well known artists and of course mail artists. A lot of publications just go for "names" to swell their numbers and as a result simply maintain the status quo and show a lot of boring work as well. Redux is proving you can attract a large audience while focusing on new art and artists.

If you dig into past Redux issues you'll find Carina Granlund and (I think) Svenja Wahl as well. Again, there are many other great people in there beyond the folks with a common connection to IUOMA, but it's amazing to see the wonderful things that are emerging from the m-a community today. The great days of the network are clearly not over (as some claim). They are still ahead.

So thanks ltvs - for your hard work building Redux. It's working!
