Parallel Visions: Poets, Artists, and the Book

July 8 - October 8, 2017

Throughout history, many artists have found irresistible the challenge of bringing their visions to poetry, frequently finding inspiration in classical and canonical poets. In the twentieth century, as the avant-garde gained ascendancy, many visual artists gravitated to the exciting new experimental writing of the day. Collaboration deepened between artists and poets who engaged together as contemporaries in the creation of livres d’artiste, or artists’ books.  http://legionofhonor.famsf.org/

Using off-the-shelf-materials and the occasional found object, Drew produces pieces whose metaphorical power is located within his labor-intensive manipulation of materials and the spatial dynamics of his compositions. http://deyoungmuseum.com
