Three Visual Poems

by Sarah J. Sloat

April


 

I propose to dwell




 

Winter was a sort of criticism



 

Artist Statement:

I love books, paper, and the material world and hope my work reflects that. I appreciate what the visual element can bring to poetry, how text and images work together, and how the visual can open a poem to to new possibilities and a wider audience. I want what lends texture and most of my work is analog. Although it has happened that I have torn, crushed, or lost pages or clippings accidentally, I feel having them in my hands gives me more control than having them onscreen.
