Visual Poetics

Intuitive Digital Collage

World Collage Day 2020

Although my intuitive digital collages are visual, they are wordless,  but in this space they speak.  I feel that there is a narrative that can be created by each image, either poetically or in creative writing.  Willard Bhon, defined  Visual Poetry as the “poetry that is meant to be seen – Poetry that presupposes a viewer as well as reader.” In my case, it can incorporate  a writer, who can view the images, engage with it, and create their own stories or poems, or art in response to it. I find that art is interactive, another form of narrative practice, another way of dreaming, connecting,  and  healing.  

 

My intuitive digital collage holds space for dreams, for coincidences and the unconscious. I believe in synchronicity, that each image holds together something that was meant to be. I trust my body’s  felt sense in the choice of an image, and how they eventually come together to make a whole. If I trust my intuition, I trust myself and allow images to represent what needs to take form. Art is about faith; it is about trust.

About Me

I am a psychotherapist, educator, poet, and writer, author of My Daughter’s Eyes and Other Stories (2007) and winner of the Curbstone Press Marmol Prize for First Latina Fiction. My most recent fiction is anthologized in Viajeros del Rocio: 25 Narradores Dominicanos de la Diaspora and in Riverine: An Anthology of Hudson Valley Writers. Presently, I am an Associate Professor at Touro College Graduate School of Social Work where  I am extremely lucky to not only teach clinical practice courses, but I also teach expressive arts in social work practice. This allows me to be my true self, a creative soul who is also a social worker, professor, and therapist. 

 

I am a  self- taught mixed media paper collage and digital collage artist who uses images to represent a dream-like magical world of multiple realities where images speak in the silence. I use images intuitively to reflect a world that lies between the surreal and the magical, between the reality and the imagination. I call these images Visual Poetics, as the dream world of images is poetic, and my work is intuitive and dream-inspired.

 

I  find that art is interactive, another form of narrative practice, another way of dreaming, connecting,  and healing.  My intuitive digital collage holds space for dreams, for coincidences and the unconscious. I believe in synchronicity, that each image holds together something that was meant to be. I trust my body’s felt sense in the choice of an image, and how they eventually come together to make a whole. If I trust my intuition, I trust myself and allow images to represent what needs to take form. Art is about faith; it is about trusting the process.  I lead expressive arts workshops focusing on dreams, writing as a healing modality, collage making, visual art journaling, and books art. 

I have led dream groups at Lehman College when I was a Director of their Counseling Center.  Once I left Lehman College and went to Bronx Community College/CUNY, I participated in a dream group led by an adjunct psychology professor Roger Cunningham. At Bronx Community Colleg/CUNY, I met the most amazing group of students who knew how to harness the power and wisdom of their dreams.  I have been very privileged to have dreams in my life, they have guided my life, and supported my creativity. In addition, I am deeply grateful to the creative dreamers who have taught me to never give up on understanding the depth of my dreams.  Dreams have been my guide, they have helped me understand my life, but most importantly they have guided my every step. This is what I wish for you, for dreams to be your guide, for coincidences to remind you that you are on the right path and for your imagination to open to the creative forces within you.
