Red/White/Blue: Referential

In About All Publications, About Image Works on 08/03/2010 at 19:20

I have a new image up in Referential Magazine–a place where literary and visual artists connect their creations to work already published in the journal.

My photograph–Red/White/Blue–refers to Annmarie Lockhart’s poem with a similarly colored, yet differently punctuated, title: ‘Red, White and Blue’. The title of Lockhart’s work, and the poem itself, brought to mind my image, sitting in neutral, hiding in my archive, all but forgotten. Now, I’m happy to say that our works live together on a page of their own. Here’s the link:

Red/White/Blue [Eisler] + Red, White and Blue [Lockhart]

The image has roots in the ever-changing painting below–a work in perpetual progress like a chalkboard with spontaneous additions and deletions whenever I feel inclined to play with it. It hangs behind me on the wall in ‘The Lab’ where I work.

The birthing details of Red/White/Blue?

One day, a while back, I took three detail photos of the painting, digitally morphed them beyond recognition, then put them together like a puzzle.

  1. I really wish I could get someone to teach me how to paint :) You are so multi-talented!

  2. some people would call it – unable to focus :)
