visual POETRY

I appreciate a puzzle. And, I truly appreciate an artist that trusts me to figure it out for myself. Today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, textile artist Tilleke Schwarz leaves gaps allowing the viewer to fill in incomplete narratives and stories, never presuming to spoon feed the entirety of the message.  A gift.

Daily life, mass media, traditional samplers and cats are major sources of inspiration. The result is a mixture of content, graphic quality and fooling around. The work can be understood as a kind of visual poetry. Every work contains narrative elements. Not really complete stories, with a beginning, a storyline, and an end. On the contrary, the viewer is invited to decipher connections or to create them. ” — Tilleke Schwarz
