“Surrogate” – a collage with asemics – by Amy Irwen (Rosemount, Minnesota, USA)

 

Amy Irwen participated in Asemic Front previously with collabs. Now she has sent a beautiful solo collage with asemic writing which I am thrilled to share. The circular asemics are an excellent structural device as are the text-image relations that make this piece visual poetry as well. Here is a closer look:

Asemics by Yayoi S.W. (Kirkland, Washington, USA)

 

Yayoi S.W. is creating wonderful art and sharing it via the Eternal Network. She is receiving rave responses. Because her work is often image-text and/or asemic, she has captured the interest of the vispo and asemics communities as well. I’ve already been thrilled to include her work in the Asemic Front project. Her asemics are becoming, in my estimation, more refined and expressive. I am now happy to have new solo work by Yayoi S.W. to share. For those versed in mail art, you might note that she appears to be part of the Mail Art 365 project, a huge worldwide effort that requires a great deal of discipline.

Asemic Front collab by Michael Orr (Clarkston, Georgia, USA) & De Villo Sloan (Auburn, New York, USA)

 

These snail mail collaborations between Michael Orr and me took a long time as they were scheduled early in the Asemic Front project. I believe they turned out very well as the result of Michael Orr’s contemplation.

For me, these pieces are rooted in the geometry of traditional concrete (typewriter art) poetry. However, they depart into the digital realm showing an evolution in technology (digital glitch images have been integrated). Ironically, these pieces were composed using traditional collage technique (scissors and glue). Granted, some of the outcome is based purely on Michael Orr’s unique and recognizable style. It has been great to be able to work with him.

Asemic visual poetry collab by Laura Ortiz & Donmay Donamayoora

Laura dona - 1Asemic visual poetry collaboration by Laura Ortiz (Toronto, Canada) and Donmay Donamayoora (Connecticut, USA)

 

Laura Ortiz and Donmay Donamayoora have already made important contributions to Asemic Front. They are welcome contributors always.

Today I am thrilled to be able to present the first Ortiz-Donamayoora collab that has ever appeared on AF. I believe the work is a remarkable success that highlights the talents of both Ortiz and Donamayoora.

They are both receiving much acclaim in the asemic and visual poetry communities. The symbols and structures (asemic syntax), as well as the foundational visual aesthetics, reveal why these two women are so admired. I am very happy to be able to share this piece on Asemic Front. Some detail studies are included as well.
