hindSIGHT #10Welcome to hindSIGHT #10Visual Poetry. It may be easier to say what it is not rather than what it is. Instead of trying to define the genre, however, I thought I'd present here a few collages (from the group archives) that are, as far as I can tell, visual poetry even though the artists probably did not think to call their work that.There is a journal entry HERE about a book and an article on visual poetry. Writing To Be Seen edited by Bob Gumman and Crag Hill, 2001, is another book about visual poetry. Other journal entries with visual poetry resources are HERE and HERE and HERE.unmadeby object000K from Use Thursday wipby object000Quote Meby Liz Cohn
criteriaWay back months ago, some work was done on describing criteria for collages being considered for The Art Of Collage folders. Keep in mind that the list below reflects the thinking and words of several people and we borrowed liberally from other groups here on dA. A list like this can never be complete or exact but I think it provides a general idea about the considerations given collages coming into the group. Some of the qualities we look for in collage art include:strong visual impact – color, composition, content unique, imaginative visual solutions an underlying conceptual or visual framework. intentionality (even if it’s random, it has to be intentional) Some of the things we generally avoid:scrapbooking or journaling that does not have a strong conceptual quality as well pretty or decorative work that lacks a conceptual framework immature, naïve or superficial work work that is computer generated (for example, work made solely by a photo mo
Observations about the group. Part TwoRecently I’ve been thinking about the Featured folder. What do I want to see there? What does anyone want to see there? How can we use it to showcase collage work? Am I making too big of a deal out of this? To explain the difference between the Traditional and Featured folders, I recently wrote that when I look at a piece in the Featured folder I want to be able to say to myself, “Whoa Momma (or Daddy, as you prefer) now there’s what you can do with collage.” For the Featured folder, having flawless composition and color is not enough if the piece does not push at some boundaries or solve a visual problem with unexpected elegance or take me in a deliciously edgy way out of my own comfort zone. Pieces in the Featured folder should captivate me with beautiful subtlety or eye-brow raising boldness. If a piece in the Featured folder has some kind of narrative, even an unknowable narrative, so much the better. One idea bei

Norman Rockwell, All American DeviantShare|AboutNorman Rockwell, All American DeviantBy techgnoticNorman Rockwell Tribute by SarafinconceptsFew artists have so definitively reflected the lives of average Americans as Norman Rockwell.He began his lifetime dedication to being the “America’s Illustrator” as the 19-year-old art editor for Boys’ Life, the house publication of the Boy Scouts of America. A few years later he assumed his more famous position at The Saturday Evening Post, though he never broke his ties with the Boy Scouts. His first great achievement painting everyday scenes of America in his signature hyper-realistic style was
Collection: StarsShare|AboutStarsPhotographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer numbers than any magician’s most mind–bending sleight of hand.“I am like a falli
Collection: CreaturesShare|AboutCreaturesIn ancient tradition, Halloween was thought to be the night of the year when the realms of the living of the living and the dead came the closest together, enabling evil spirits and demons to hop over to our side to make mischief. For centuries the Church made very serious studies of what these hellacious creatures were actually thought to look like. Today, “creature imagining” is just a creative exercise and a way of having fun. Thank goodness none of our deviantART artists are drawing any of the subjects of this collection from live models. (Then again, just maybe…)“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”– William Shakespeare
Collection: Dia de Los MuertosShare|AboutDia de los Muertos“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the indestructible bonds of family being forever connected—even in the next world.“Entre flore

Clive Barker: Return of The Dark MasterShare|AboutBy techgnoticHis Books of Blood in the 1980s established him as a premier master of the horror narrative, on an equal level or even surpassing Stephen King, who said of him;I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker.Stephen KingLike King, Barker’s works of horror have been adopted and adapted for movies, his stories becoming the basis for the Hellraiser and Candyman series and many more. Beyond his stories being used as source material, Barker has worked as screenwriter, producer, actor and director in the film world.As with Stephen King, many of Clive’s fans have found him through enjoying his horror tales
Collection: MasksShare|AboutMasksHalloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
