By chance

These poems were made as part of a presentation to the School of the Visual Arts Conference on Liberal Arts and the Education of Artists. The presentation was based on the structure of the work of one of my favorite poets, Frederico Garcia Lorca.  Lorca wrote a series of “Suites” – short poems that are organized something like the way that I organize my work – highlighting connections that link sense and nonsense. So my thought was to create a similar loop by using the works that I created with no particular unifying theme in mind other than the media and material linkages and create a written poetic journey that makes the link.
