Artist-Writer-Artist

This page brings together many of the posts that relate to a theme that has emerged strongly in my own studio work, my teaching, and this blog: the idea of a writer who makes visual art, and the visual artist who writes (i.e., an artist who writes extended pieces, rather than just incorporating text into their art). It's a fascinating subject, raising many interesting questions, such as: why do some artists and writers feel compelled to cross over for short or long periods into another medium? How does the other medium compare to their primary medium? What are they expressing or learning from the change? I've given these posts the shorthand title 'Artist-Writer-Artist', and it's something I will explore in more depth in future blog posts.
