Marilyn R. Rosenberg
Marilyn R. Rosenberg, makes artists’ books, sculptural bookworks and fills blank books to become altered books. As usual, MRR works are actual and virtual images first made with pens, inks and gouache, collage, then often scanned into the computer to change and merge to become visual and asemic poems. MRR’s works are on/in exhibitions, blogs and web publications and print edition pages and books.
Philosophy, practice- process, product – promulgation – As usual, Marilyn R. Rosenberg’s works, visual and asemic poems, are actual images first made with pens and brush, inks and gouache, pencils and misc. Media on papers, made on the drawing board often as part of artists’ books/bookworks. Later these pages and sheets are often scanned into the computer to change and merge, transmuted clones-virtual images. Sometimes these works move on to publishers to become print editions or to be part of publications as blogs. Many unique and edition works become part of university or museum library collections.
Interacting within themselves and with the viewer/reader – content, vehicle, form, medium, and word, within a concept, pull together merging the themes and the means. As phantoms reappear, fears and imagined fabulous possibilities, connected to the future, continue.
