“Writers who’ve inspired me: a SoulCollage homage”
My entry in a juried art exhibition, titled: “Writers who’ve inspired me: a SoulCollage® homage,” features six of my SoulCollage images and accompanying dialogue that I wrote to each writer (Mark Twain; Anne Frank; Maya Angelou; Helen Keller; Opal Whiteley; and Deena Metzger).
The heading included on the piece is “Bring a voice to what lies hidden.” In my view, each of these writers has shared wisdom and addressed aspects of life, from social and political hypocrisy (Twain) to sexual abuse (Angelou), that would often otherwise remain unarticulated. This theme has appeared in a variety of my creative work, including my current memoir-in-progress The Goose Girl: Twenty Years Chasing a Family Secret.
