this is visual poetry by Angela Caporaso

21 February 2014 - Filed under Caporaso, Angela + female + Italy


Angela Caporaso is an Italian artist and women book artist. Angela Caporaso’s art has always been characterized by a constant research and experimentation. Since her first exhibitions, which date back to the eighties, she has revealed a constant strain towards new expressive languages. This constant research led Angela to contaminate sign with colour, font with image, literature with painting, as though one single medium was not sufficient to express her complex imaginative world. Angela Caporaso has worked on the words of the main contemporary writers.

this is visual poetry by Fedwa Malti-Douglas

24 November 2013 - Filed under female + Malti-Douglas, Fedwa + USA


Poet, writer, and visual artist, Fedwa Malti-Douglas grew up in the Lebanese mountain village of Deir al-Qamar (the Abode of the Moon). After a career of university teaching, publications, and honors (including the Kuwait Prize for Arts and Letters, and election to the American Philosophical Society), she retired in 2012. In 2011, before fleeing the groves of academe, Fedwa received an MFA in Creative Writing from Bennington College. Her non-scholarly publications include two novels (Hisland, and The Bush-Saddam Tapes) and poetry (New Directions). She lives in Rhinebeck, N.Y. with one husband and two cats.

Fedwa says: “Must one look through darkness to see light?” asks one of the central poem/images in this collection by Fedwa Malti-Douglas as it journeys from the forests of disability to the bright colors of freedom and affirmation.

Fedwa’s digital artworks are trans-genre marriages of equality between text and image, in that neither takes precedence over the other.

Faut-il traverser la nuit (ou una selva oscura) pour trouver la lumière? C’est la question que pose cette collection de Fedwa Malti-Douglas où les mots sont mariés aux images dans les couleurs flamboyantes des vitraux gothiques.
