Mail art by IUOMA member Irene Ronchetti (aka Todo Collage) (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
February 24, 2017 - The Karnival of Trash has been greatly enhanced by the participation of Latin American artists and poets who clearly understand the concepts of Trashpo.
Irene Ronchetti is a wonderful collage artist, and I am thrilled to be able to share her work today. Argentina and Brazil are global leaders in concrete and visual poetry. So I note Irene Ronchetti’s work for the exhibit is verbal-visual, image-text, or as the great Bob Grumman called it (among other designations) “infra-verbal.” This, of course, is the essence of Trashpo – a form of visual poetry – that makes use of found material and often radical disjunction. I believe Irene Ronchetti has created very innovative work here.
