“The Great Wall of China”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Juan Pablo Mobili: Undine’s image had me think about what my son might have been looking at—seeing, really—with his back to me. That was something I had not considered before, even when I was revising my poem. Artist Undine Brod: When I see the final broadside, I tend to feel an easing up in my mind or somewhere in my body. Once the two parts are unified, I feel the process is complete and the intention fulfilled. It isn’t necessarily a shift in the work that is brought to light, but rather a whole new work is presented. 

Poet Juan Pablo Mobili was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and adopted by New York a long time ago. His poems received an Honorable Mention from the Creators of Justice Award from the International Human Rights Art Festival. Artist Undine Brod’s work primarily addresses the human condition using animals as stand-ins for people. She currently lives in Rhinebeck, NY and travels to attend residences, give presentations, and teach.
