Giving Voice To Image 5: A Collaboration of Artists and Poets at ViVO Contemporary
For the fifth year ViVO Contemporary artists are collaborating with an award winning group of New Mexico poets giving poetic voice to artistic image in the new show, Giving Voice To Image 5. This creative alliance draws its inspiration from the ancient Roman poet Horace’s adage, “A picture is a poem without words.” All too often, artistic disciplines remain separate. Giving Voice To Image 5 is a unique and exciting celebration of the beauty of words and images which explores the ways in which each can intensify the power of the other.
I was very fortunate to work with the poet Basia Miller, who wrote this beautiful and insightful poem about my painting “Blue Umbrella in Paris”
