Sources & Inspiration

 

To begin with, how I came to be running amok with Caryatids and other imagery – it is Christopher Lovegrove’s fault. Chris has two blogs, Calmgrove (Literature & Culture) and My New Shy (photography) . While checking out some of his recent photography posts, I was in the process of commenting on the post, Caryatid, when I noticed that the list of blog categories formed a set of imagist lines, found poetry.

I set out to copy the words & construct a sequence, I ended up acquiring some extra text from the blog post. For some reason, these words doubled up, a Dadaist gift.  I had recently posted one of my visual pieces on Twitter, “flux – portrait “, and hashtag title set off the opening lines of this piece. Besides incorporating a screen capture from Chis’ post, I reworked a number of own compositions to illustrate the lines. I also used some images from Flikr Commons  

Arc de Diane, Cahors- 1891

pg 198 – The general catalogue of Jacobson-co (1915)

Abergavenny, Holy Mountain 1890 – 1900.

Female Caryatid statue -Henry Hering 1919

  1. I shall have to throw down some more gauntlets, I can see, Joseph! Thanks for the mention, but above all thanks for the gallery of caryatids (a galleryatid?) and the intriguing processing of some of my words and phrases, most enlightening!

      Glad you enjoyed the results. Surprisingly, there were not too many photos of caryatids in Flikr Commons.
      Will Dr. Who, having faced the Weeping Angels, now have to deal with the Smiling Caryatids, or will the censors say no ? 🤔
      I’m now awaiting shots of a gauntlet from your next Victorian castle visitation. 🏰
