Currently hanging in the “Haiku” exhibit at the Firehall Gallery in the historic Charles Town Arts District. The original is created in oil and cold wax, a fascinating, infinitely layered process which can incorporate a variety of media. I created this painting in response to the poetry of the sea, specifically the Atlantic Ocean off Assatateague Island while I was camping and developing “Picture Wild Ponies.”
The asemic writing reminded me of a love letter. I love Wikipedia’s definition of anemic writing: “Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means ‘having no specific semantic content’, or ‘without the smallest unit of meaning’. With the non-specificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning, which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret.
