The Poetry Project: A Collaboration Between David Mann & Michael Sickler
October 28, 2015 - Thatcher Projects
We are excited to share a collaborative project by David Mann and poet, Michael Sickler, which has been published by ArtFile, a curated online forum for art and culture founded by Alicia DeBrincat. The Poetry Project has been an online, ongoing collaboration conceived in 2013. Starting out with a poem that Sickler wrote in response to Mann's painting, Ring, the back and forth, poem and painting exhange has since continued. The project now consisits of about 30 pairs and continues to grow. According to Mann, "The paintings aren't intended as illurations of the poems nor are the poems descriptions of the paintings. The relationship has worked on a more intuitive and feeling level, the sensual, imagistic and the imaginative."
