Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Margaret Noodin: The image of the rollers fascinated me because they are so thin and consist mostly of a round skeleton used to put air and motion into hair.  Artist Meghan Keane: As a solo portrait that I had always viewed as playful yet having fairly massive and megalithic properties (like Carnac on someone’s head, a curler topography of sorts), I am fascinated that while each vision is so evidently distinct, they both hold something in common that I myself didn’t see.

“Como Una Vela”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators Q&A: Artist Meghan Keane: this colorful piece isn’t just a compelling abstract composition of shapes and colors, but has the capacity to function as a portal to communal memory and ties between humans, is an element of the work I now see, thanks to this “Como Una Vela.” Poet Michelle Moncayo: “Rollers” was striking in that it instantly took me through a tour of several very specific, very vivid places in my life–-from the island of Domincan Republic, to Brooklyn, to Newark. The bold purples, pinks, and blues of the hair rollers combined with the curving movement of the shapes created a powerful, layered narrative.

Poet Michelle Moncayo is a Dominican/Ecuadorian poet. She received a 2020 Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, SPACE at Ryder Farm, and Vermont Studio Center. Artist Meghan Keane is a painter and printmaker. She is a visiting alumni artist at Brooklyn College art department printshop.
