Kerri Pullo Unplugged – Featuring Recent Minimalist Pieces (Tucson, Arizona, USA)

By Kerri Pullo (Arizona, USA) (March 2017)

 

In most cases I try to avoid ranking contemporary asemic writers and artists. Kerri Pullo is an exception. I have a tremendous admiration for her work, and I know many others do as well. Her art is very popular. I try to document it often because I am convinced she is one of the most important asemicists working today. She is strikingly original and innovative.

Recently Kerri Pullo has been creating pieces that suggest a vertical “reading” structure. I want to focus on examples in this, her first Asemic Front appearance. These – what I call – vertical pieces (above is a great example) attain a new level of complexity with intricate layers and intertwining script. This recent phase, however, has produced some very stripped-down and relatively minimalist pieces. This entry also focuses on these more economical compositions; they reveal another aspect of her work. Some are process-oriented. I believe they deserve a close look:
