Back when I was 17, my high school art teacher thought I might major art and not in English. Literature was always my first love (though it took me a long time to dare to move from literary scholarship to creative writing), but I'm still inspired by art. A wonderful prompt from Kathy Fish today on fragmented mosaic flash has me thinking about art museums and how I can't wait until they reopen and also how much I've written about art in the past year or so. I did some ekphrastic micros about Munch, and more recently these.
my lyric essay "Octopus Dreams" in Rapahannock Review (where I talk about Magritte, Chagall, and Joseph Cornell)
my forthcoming flash on Dorothy Tanning in Cotton Xenomorph
my forthcoming flash sequence on Munch and Picasso in Tiny Molecules
my flash fiction set in the Magritte exhibit, "The Lost Umbrella" in Pithead Chapel (sort of recent)
my new lyric essay on Joseph Cornell (not even sending out yet)
We have tickets for the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit in July, which looks like it might be overwhelming but definitely interesting.
