Kate Greenstreet + Joshua Marsh

Four color stone and photo plate lithograph hand-drawn by the artist and poet.
Edition of 20
This dynamic four-color stone highlights Joshua Marsh’s striking manipulation of color. He pushes the printer’s inks to new limits with an acid bath of vibrant light. We love how the split apple, mirror, ampersand, and other visual cues keep in conversation with Greenstreet’s use of conjoining words “or,” “and,” “through” —words that describe movement and place, her restless questioning of the boundary and definition of self. Both poet and painter are shown here at the height of their powers, pursuing their obsessions side by side, and thrown into ever more fascinating relief as we experience them in relation to each other.
Kate Greenstreet is the author of Young Tambling, The Last 4 Things, and case sensitive, all from Ahsahta Press. The End of Something is forthcoming. Her videopoems can be viewed at kickingwind.tumblr.com.
