with hair and pages flying...

Dancing Poems!

For a long while now I have been fascinated with visual art that incorporates text in different ways. With all the leaping going on in this mixed media collage, a lot of the movement here is in the varied angles of the text. The text is actually pages torn from my chapbook Inverse Origami, which are collaged to this canvas, as was the dancer, who was drawn on plain paper in crayon and oil pastel. In addition there is some acrylic paint applied to weave it together.
