Je te porte dans moi comme un oiseau blessé: Poetry Broadside
Well, it has indeed been a while since I’ve posted new art on here, so here we have it! This is another poetry broadside I painted for Roger Hooper. When Roger presented me with this poem as a candidate for a new broadside I was super excited. I mean just read that thing! It’s so damn visceral, I love it.
So developing imagery for this one was pretty fun for me. After spending many gut churning hours looking at photo’s of tissue damage for inspiration I ended up diving a bit deeper. The Science Photo Library, proved to be an amazing source for electron microscope imagery, of so much juicy amazing stuff. I’ve always been drawn to that imagery to getting the chance to riff off it was great. And This is obviously the result. Don’t look too hard for a direct physical correlation, there isn’t one, but I’m sure you could pick out my biggest influences in a lineup there.
Oh and this is ink, and watercolors, and the text is digital.
