MinXus mail from Ms. Kerri Pullo (Tucson, Arizona, USA)

Trademark paper clip asemics by Kerri Pullo (Tucson, Arizona, USA)

Primarily a visual artist, Kerri Pullo is distinguishing herself also as a gifted asemic writer and innovative visual poet.

MinXus-Lynxus is thrilled to unveil new work from Kerri acquired in conjunction with Solar Festival 2012. Her work was displayed in The Glory of MinXus Exhibition in May.  The piece above is a stellar example of her art using paper clips, fluidly bent to create asemic symbols. These have a wonderful organic quality that transforms the utilitarian and mass-produced paper clips into poetry. A further asemic element is present with the red dots that help integrate the work with the green field.

Kerri Pullo’s art displays a wide range of interests and styles. The work on the left could be interpreted as a representation of cacti in the desert; yet, as with many asemic writers, Kerri finds traces of language in the natural world (eco-asemics) and it stands as yet another example of her asemic writing. The situation is similar for the piece on the right, but she moves the focus from individual symbols and their relations to cursive patterns. Here are the reverse sides:

Below is an exquisite piece, done on a very fine paper offering subtle textures:

The paint applications are worn, perhaps as the result of travelling through the mail. This gives the work an ancient and also uses fading to achieve asemic effects. This work offers a mix of asemic and conventional handwriting. Here is the reverse side:

This is beautiful art by Kerri Pullo done in the spirit of MinXus-Lynxus. We are thrilled to add them to the MinXus USA collection and to present them as part of the Solar Festival Exhibition.

Our deepest appreciation goes to Kerri Pullo, and more of her art will be displayed during the course of Solar Festival 2012.

    Miss Rebecca, it is a sight for sore eyes to see you back at the Mink Ranch. As the proprieteress of a chicken ranch yourself, I am sure you are aware of the dangers of natural disasters.

    Basically, we had to re-build the blog.

    Hope you are having a good summer and feeling better.

    Y’ll come back now.

    and by staples I mean paperclips. I don’t know why I always mix up both words. It must be a side effect of that ‘nesia business.
