Barb Hawes "Ekphrastic Journeys"
The six poems express defining moments in my understanding of art. These defining moments center on six works of art that I either saw in museums or studied in my art history classes. The first four book sculptures, titled Constructions I-IV, convey aspects of the creative process I experienced while writing the poems. The fifth book sculpture, titled Bound, ties them all together as the paths of my journeys intersect
In any creative process, there are always unexpected turns and detours. The six drawings occurred as explorations of how to visually convey my experiences with each work of art. The poem for each work written continuously in the background offsets a phrase that developed from the poem. The medallion is the model for the windows that I used in Ekphrastic Journeys: Bound.
And, as for the chapbook, which was never in the plan: well, I just love to set and print type.
