Asemic art by Kerri Pullo (Tucson, Arizona, USA)

Recently in another venue, we referred to longtime MinXus-Lynxus contributor Kerri Pullo as “everyone’s favorite asemic writer.”

We believe Kerri Pullo has earned this designation due to the nearly universal, positive response to her work. Both an audience within the visual poetry(-asemic) community and a larger audience outside that community are Kerri Pullo fans. She is able to satisfy the often demanding theoretical and literary requirements of conceptually minded poets and win favor with a broader audience. Her approach is time tested; one need only think of Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly.

Kerri Pullo’s ability to merge abstract art and asemics, we think, at least partially accounts for her success. We are thrilled to be able to share some new work by Kerri Pullo that emphasizes the visual art aspect of her work. The opening scan, to the best of our knowledge, is a MinXus-Lynxus exclusive! We are pleased to unveil this piece for the first time. Here is another piece Kerri Pullo recently shared with the Asemic Writing for Mail Artists group at IUOMA-Ning:

We conclude our feature of new work by Kerri Pullo with this re-mix of a gorgeous piece that appeared on the AAAAA blog. This blog, we think, is another project initiated by the great visual poet and MinXus-Lynxus contributor Fatima Quieroz of Brazil:

Theme and aesthetic continuity are certainly present in these newer pieces.

This is also an appropriate place to mention that our MinXus-Lynxus e-book division at Scribd is proud to have published a full-length collection of asemics by Kerri Pullo. Make sure to take a look!
