Art Life Broadside "Shadowside"
Art Life Broadside

I have been scurrying around my blog sorting through all my old posts searching for all my poetry to put on this one page here. I’ve also been scanning and adding broadsides to posts that needed them. These are broadsides that I created from 1996-2004 for ArtLife Limited Editions; many of them are posted here.And I still have more broadsides–I made over 3 dozen and I’ve posted about one third now–so there are more to come!

For the complete text of the poem above, “Impressions from the Shadowside” which was published in Art Life August 1997, and a some of the story behind making the body print ala Yves Klein, go here.

ArtLife published this broadside, “Celebrate” in its 200 issue; you can read the text there and some of the story behind making the body art print. Below is the cover of that issue:

Yes, that’s clay and wire mesh. These magazines were truly amazing pieces of art. Many of us who participated over the years made elaborate pages consuming many hours and material resources!

One of the goals of the publication was to show both the mind and the hand of the artist. While some of the poets, especially in the years I participated, made their own pages or collaborated with artists (for example friday lubine and michael row or the Sullivans, Kevin Patrick and Patty) toward the end, poetry editor Phil Taggart made most of them which enabled fabled poets like Sharon Doubiago and others (like Michael Bauer) to participate.

I found creating a visual medium to go with my poetry a wonderful intellectual and artistic challenge. Many of my pieces integrated the physical use of my body in some way–like the body paintings, whether I did impressions like above, or had someone paint or henna my pregnant body. I also enjoyed adding the “hand” part–how could it be more than just a copy? How could the “hand” of the artist be revealed as well as the mind? So for example adding the Valentine candies to the collage “I was thinking about getting a dog” in the previous post or sand and glow in the dark stars to “Redemption/Navigation.”

I posted one more broadside previously, “Doors (text and story here),” published in ArtLife May 1997, and added this broadside to that post today:

The broadsides are available from me for purchase; you can buy back issues of ArtLife here
