Words in Air
Transcribing a selection of poems by 20th century American female poets—letter by letter—in an invented shorthand of simplified marks, the artists blend a chorus of poetic voices into a single visual response. Addressing ideas of light and color in both their choice of poems and in the ways they restructure them, the artists marry form and content. Woven together, layered, and suspended in space, the “words” are united through cast shadows and reflected color to create a visual experience that is cohesive and solid, but at the same time shimmers and shifts in conversation with the ever-changing light and movement of people within the gallery.
