The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center : Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images
Jan 30 all-day

The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center :

Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images

SusanWeilApril2000forweb

January 30 – May 23, 2015
Opening Reception – Friday, January 30, 5:30-8:00pm
With a gallery talk by exhibition co-curator

Susan Weil’s poemumbles are a unique form of poetic expression that explore the limitless potential and fluidity of her thoughts in visual and verbal form. Weil has always had an affinity for words. Ever since her father Leonard read Chaucer and Joyce to her as a child, words have given Weil a unique way of looking at the world. When Susan met her Swedish dealer Anders Tornberg in 1977, she began sending him poems and accompanying images. Over the course of the next six years, Weil sent some 5,000 poemumbles to Anders in Lund, Sweden, from high on the 18th floor of her Chinatown apartment.

On May 11th, 1984, Anders received a poem, a delicate watercolor cup of coffee, and a note declaring Weil’s intention to write and send to Anders a daily poemumble. By 1986 Susan was making three versions of her poemumbles, one large version for her notebooks, and postcard sized versions for Anders, and for her dear friend and publisher of livres d’artiste, Vincent FitzGerald.

Today, 30 years and over 10, 930 poemumbles later, Weil has stayed true to her intention. No subject is too small or grand for a poemumble. One day Weil might elucidate the experience of seeing a painting, form a play on words, evoke a distant memory or dreamscape, whisper murmurs of the sea, or the pull of the moon. The poemumbles have also been place for Weil to weave her thoughts and images with past creative masters. Da Vinci, Botticelli, Rumi, Picasso, Henrik Ibsen, Gertrude Stein, ‘Papa Matisse’ as Susan fondly calls him, and her lifelong inspiration and creative co-collaborator ‘Jimmy Joy,’ James Joyce have all made guest appearances in Weil’s poemumbles.

Earlier poemumbles of delicate pencil drawings and watercolors, rubber stamped with the date, evolved into collages of magazine images and textual snippets. As Weil’s studio work has changed so too have the poemumbles. Today, Weil incorporates found images from the vast trove of the Internet into her daily poems, and has made several plexi-glass works inspired by earlier poemumbles.

Free & open to the public: (12:00 – 4:00 Tuesday-Wednesday

and 11:00 – 5:00 Thursday, Friday and Saturday).

Poemumbles – 30 years of Susan Weil’s poem/images

Opening Reception – Friday, January 30, 5:30-8:00pm
With a gallery talk by exhibition co-curator

Susan Weil’s poemumbles are a unique form of poetic expression that explore the limitless potential and fluidity of her thoughts in visual and verbal form. Weil has always had an affinity for words. Ever since her father Leonard read Chaucer and Joyce to her as a child, words have given Weil a unique way of looking at the world. When Susan met her Swedish dealer Anders Tornberg in 1977, she began sending him poems and accompanying images. Over the course of the next six years, Weil sent some 5,000 poemumbles to Anders in Lund, Sweden, from high on the 18th floor of her Chinatown apartment.

On May 11th, 1984, Anders received a poem, a delicate watercolor cup of coffee, and a note declaring Weil’s intention to write and send to Anders a daily poemumble. By 1986 Susan was making three versions of her poemumbles, one large version for her notebooks, and postcard sized versions for Anders, and for her dear friend and publisher of livres d’artiste, Vincent FitzGerald.

Today, 30 years and over 10, 930 poemumbles later, Weil has stayed true to her intention. No subject is too small or grand for a poemumble. One day Weil might elucidate the experience of seeing a painting, form a play on words, evoke a distant memory or dreamscape, whisper murmurs of the sea, or the pull of the moon. The poemumbles have also been place for Weil to weave her thoughts and images with past creative masters. Da Vinci, Botticelli, Rumi, Picasso, Henrik Ibsen, Gertrude Stein, ‘Papa Matisse’ as Susan fondly calls him, and her lifelong inspiration and creative co-collaborator ‘Jimmy Joy,’ James Joyce have all made guest appearances in Weil’s poemumbles.

Earlier poemumbles of delicate pencil drawings and watercolors, rubber stamped with the date, evolved into collages of magazine images and textual snippets. As Weil’s studio work has changed so too have the poemumbles. Today, Weil incorporates found images from the vast trove of the Internet into her daily poems, and has made several plexi-glass works inspired by earlier poemumbles.

Free & open to the public: (12:00 – 4:00 Tuesday-Wednesday

and 11:00 – 5:00 Thursday, Friday and Saturday).
