Lisa Berley 2 erasure poems/collages

(click on images for full-size versions)






Source & Method: My material for the poems and collages comes from The NY Times magazines. I used the Times for years for mixed media work. It provides rich imagery both in content and color. The articles are equally rich in words, no matter the subject written about. I use ‘wite-out’ for erasure. My style is not precision but about the handwork in the process.

Lisa Berley began her career in San Francisco where she received a BFA. She integrated painting, photography and CGI in digital work. Returning to NY for two decades she exhibited abstract mixed media works on paper. Berley moved to Colorado continuing to work from deconstructed found images and recently combining it with erasure poetry.
