Karla Van Vilet
Paintings with Asemic Writing
As both an artist and poet I am intrigued with the transitory realm of thought, feeling, and experience. The act of making, the gesture of writing, generating marks on the page, be it letter or character, dendritic form, or simple line, shape, and color, keeps me engaged in the practice of expression and in conversation with what is emerging from my unconscious to be communicated.
My works in ink on paper explore a deep pool of metaphoric imagery such as landscape, river, mountain, bird, flower, rain, or snow.
In these works I utilize ink, water, time, and gravity as my medium. I hope to create a sense of stillness where feeling can open
and be experienced.
