Everydays numbers 23 and 24:
‘His Mind like Fabrics of the East’ and ‘We can but follow to the Sun’ are both first lines of poems by Emily Dickinson. Most of the picture comes first, then I find the first line from an index of her poems, and the picture changes a little to accommodate it, like the addition of the sun above. The inspiration comes from hearing Roni Horn talk about Emily Dickinson’s first lines, like each of them are poems in themselves. It’s very true. They stand alone quite amazingly.
Perhaps the drawn lines in the second picture come from years travelling to the Basque Country and seeing drawings by the wonderful Eduardo Chillida hanging in bars and restaurants.
If anyone is following these drawings every day, do let me know in the comments. I’m curious 🙂
