Despite my having been very interested in poetry for a lot of my life, I’ve resisted the urge to incorporate text into my art because I sometimes feel it’s cheap way to force and narrow the meaning of a visual work. Lately though, I’ve been inspired by some artists working with text such as Natalya Lobanova, whose work is an intersection between poetry, comics, and diary art.
