Profile Information

What kind of art do you do?
I am, first, a poet. I create visual “poem objects” that, I hope, convey messages or feelings with visual poetics: analogy, metaphor, rhyme and alliteration of color and shape, juxtaposition, and things left unsaid.
What is your website address?
www.artflit.com
What is the guiding principle in your art?
The original spark between artist, art, and audience is as whimsical and unpredictable as it is between humans. Who knows why we are initially attracted to a piece of art. As with people, the first reaction is usually to some physical feature. Something either affects us or it doesn’t, and that is perfectly acceptable. We explore. We discover. We winnow. A poem or a piece of art needs to hit us somehow before we move deeper into it. When I finish a piece of my own or discover work by others, either art or poetry, and that piece really works for me and on me, I have the urge to windmill my arm like Pete Townshend. It's what drives me and keeps me up at night and gets me up in the morning. I believe that any form of art is only successful if the work turns a common item or idea into an uncommon one – creating not only the poem or poem-object, but some form of emotional power chord. Or sometimes just the sense - or possibility - of that kind of alchemy.

Your eye for the eloquence of a curve is moving, whether used to evoke nostalgia or something futuristic.
